I love the way one thing leads to another.
Or to put it another way:
in the marvellous interconnectedness of all things
what I didn't even know I needed
pops up at exactly the right time.
A recent example:
A group from our church have been meeting to discuss a podcast series called The Bible for Normal People.
Two people talked about it to me.
I don't go to the group but I thought I'd listen to one of the podcasts and started with the first one - Rob Bell on What is the Bible.
I was impressed with his animated and refreshing 'take' on reading the Bible so
I borrowed the e-book from the library.
(The wonders of technology! I was reading the book on my iPad the same day I listened to the podcast - which was recorded in 2017. Whew! How quickly we take all this for granted.)
I was brought up on the Bible!
I have read it devotionally,
studied it theologically
and written Bible study notes on it for Scripture Union.
Yet I am freshly excited about the Bible right now -
thanks to:Rob Bell⇒those who recorded the podcast⇒the person who set up the church discussion group⇒the two people who talked about it⇒the technology that allowed me to listen and⇒borrow a free e-book.
Do you see what I mean about one thing leading to another?!
