sand and containers

New Zealand Listener, a national magazine, just rang, wanting to interview me about church and culture today. So we talked about Jesus having a step-dad, the foreshore and seabed issue, 20 tonnes of sand inside the church and 9 shipping containers, parked outside the church, as part of the Christmas Journey at Opawa Baptist Church.

And I tried to emphasise that the Christmas story demands we set outside our nice safe walls. The stable after all, was a long way from safety.

  1. Nine shipping containers, no wonder the Listener phoned!

  3. Does it make it into the Christmas issue? And who was the interviewer? A couple of the Christmas articles from past Listener’s are readings for BCNZ BMin NT-A distance course (98 & 99?) – maybe time to add another?
