Audio from UCCF Forum 2007

Seven hundred students, staff & relay gathered for the 2007 Forum conference at the Quinta in September. Audio downloads now available for most main sessions and tracks.

People were raving about Mike & Jo's series on 'Depending on the Living God' and I loved being at Jason & Kath's series on 'Worshipping the Creator God'. Brother Andrew was great and Lindsay's talk on Acts 17 was great.

This year's 'Open Forum' was an excellent exploration of pressing issues for the CUs and church today - Jason's comment near the end on where we get our views from was a particular highlight - the mp3 does break off just before the end of the session, not quite sure why!

Next year: John Piper and Graham Daniels plus 900 of us on site!

Tim Rudge - Conference summary

Becci Brown writes up the conference for Evangelicals Now:
"Forum 2007 certainly displayed UCCF’s vision of uniting evangelical students from every denomination and giving them the chance to tune in to the glorious melody of the gospel. And becoming confident in the message, they are utterly persuaded by the need to speak it out to those at university and round the world."

  1. any of these available in good old-fashioned PDF or Word format?

  2. Not sure if there are write-ups of any of them...

  3. Thanks Bish for giving this list - will make great listening!

    Just one thing - am trying to download the Reeves talks (I've heard most of the content multiple times before, but want to listen again because I want to hear this specific version to help me recommend this lot to other people) but the third one seems to link to the second one. I've tried looking it up on the UCCF site but can't find them on there. Do you have any ideas?

  4. Hi John,

    Hmmm. The links are definitely to different urls. I guess it's an upload error somewhere along the line - I suggest you contact Dave Turner and ask him to fix it cos it's probably just an error that he's unaware of.

"Big eyes full of wonder"

Books. Fiction. Libraries. Second only to churches as are the best gateways in your community to ultimate reality and new possibilities.

Our local library has just re-opened after refurbishment, and I love that our boys have spent several mornings there during the summer holidays, discovering some wonderful new stories.

I realised a few months back that I wasn't reading enough fiction. My work necessitates reading a lot of non-fiction, a mix of historical and contemporary thinking, biblical studies and theology. But fiction is the cinderella. Easily overlooked, and yet able to awaken my imagination and show me the way things are meant to be.

So I've picked up a few more lately - bought and borrowed. Not every book attempted flies, and that's ok. These have been winners though.

Ink. This is Alice Broadway's debut novel. It's young adult fiction and tells the story of Leora who lives in a world where the events of your life are tattooed on your skin. Nothing gets hid…

Uniquely Matthew

Reading gospel accounts in parallel is sometimes used to blur the differences in perspective between the evangelists, seeking to harmonise the texts and find a definitive historical account of what happened. No such thing exists because every account is biased and limited. You simply can't record everything. You have to hold a vantage point. And that's not a problem.

Matthew, Mark and Luke take a very different vantage point to John who was of course an eyewitness himself of the events. Comparing the text of Matthew, Mark and Luke across the death and resurrection of Jesus yields two steps.

Firstly, the common ground. All three accounts tell of...
Simon of Cyrene carrying the cross…. · Jesus labelled as King of the Jews…. · Criminals crucified with Jesus… · Darkness in the daytime… · Jesus' loud final cry… The women who witnessed Jesus death, and Jesus' burial… · The tomb lent to Jesus by Joseph of Arimithea… · The women who went to the tomb on the morning of the…

Songs we're singing in Church

Christians are a singing people, it's part of what we do when we gather.

Our church meets morning an evening on a Sunday - normally using 5 songs in each service. So, over the year that's about 520 song-slots available. The report from the database system we use ( tells us that in the past year we've sung about 150 different songs.

Our current most used song has been sung 11 times in the last year, just under once a month. Our top 10 are used about every 6 weeks. By #30 we're talking about songs used every two months. The tail is long and includes loads of classic hymns from across the centuries, plus other songs from the past 40 years, that we have used around once a term or less.

1. Rejoice - Dustin Kensrue

2. Come Praise & Glorify - Bob Kauflin

3. Man of Sorrows - Hillsong

4. Cornerstone - Hillsong

Rejoice was a song I didn't previously know, along with a couple of others that have quickly become firm favourites for me: Chri…
