Jest deud, dim ond cenedl ddarostyngedig sy’n dyrchafu ex-pats. Dylia ni fod yn falch o’n ser ein hunain am eu talent nid am iddyn nhw gael eu derbyn gan y genedl fwy. Hynny yw trist ein bod ni’n aros i @missalexjones gael brakethrough Saesneg (The One Show) cyn neud ffys ohoni. Gwaseiddra. Dyna gyd. Yn fy ngolwg i mae hi wedi ‘gwneud hi’ ymysg ei pobl ei hun ers blynyddoedd yn barod a dyna sy’n bwysig.
Not that I’ve ever disagreed with much of the content, but at times I’ve found it a bit monotone and slightly too high-brow. But I must recommend the current issue of The Evangelical Magazine for various reasons.
First of all it has a new design. Although the content is the most important thing one can’t ignore the importance of presentation especially when sharing the good Gospel news and exiting Gospel vision. I like the new design.
Secondly, the content is exiting. Huston, we have a vision! And it’s a Welsh vision! This is fresh, as a lot of the stuff in this magazine, although published by The Evangelical Movement of Wales, has been rather British.
A’n important article by Dewi Arwel Hughes, Tearfund’s Theological Advisor about the Poor, a lot of the readers of the magazine need to hear this I suspect. A’n interesting article by Steve Timmis, co-author (with Tim Chester) of Total Church about Acts 29, a church planting netwrok. And a’n honest but encouraging interview with Stuart Olyott and David Ollerton about Church Planting in Wales. Finally, there is a tribute to Gwilym Humphrys who went to be with Jesus recently, a man who did a lot in the Welsh speaking scene, it’s good to bring his story to a wider readership.
Safe to say it is a magazine for Christians rather than people looking into the Christian faith. So if your a Christian, it’s worth a read.
Souled Out: "the prophet who gets the runs and is covered in whale vomit"
I chi sydd heb benderfynnu eto os ydych chi’n dod i Souled Out haf yma yna darllenwch isod y neges wnaeth Andy Ollerton adael ar Facebook:
For those of you undicided about comming to Souled Out this Summer read what Andy Ollerton has just said on Facebook:
Google maps says its 355 miles and 6:30 hours from Penzance to Bala. So the question is: ‘Can I be bothered?’
God called Jonah to go to Ninevah - that was about the same distance away for him. He decided to go to Spain (Tarshish) instead… much nearer, hotter and ‘cooler’ (is that a word?). But he ended up in a perfect…storm, wrapped in seaweed and then covered in Whale vomit. AND he ended up going to Ninevah after all!
Perhaps its worth bothering to do what God wants. So don’t run away to Spain - or any other nice holiday destinations like Llandudno. Come and be Souled Out for Jesus. Its well worth the bother!
Looking forward to seeing you all for another S.O summer.
P.S Guess which bit of the Bible we will be looking at this year? The onewith the prophet who gets the runs and is covered in whale vomit…
