Connecting Through A Much Older Version Of Windows
I was looking for a background for a PowerPoint slide for the hymn 'Speak to me that I may Speak' and while I would usually go straight for Windows for such a task and Google searched something like 'word of God'... I actually didn't just stay within my office bound worldview. Instead of Windows I just stepped outside the door of my office.. and let a much older version of Windows speak to me. Right outside my door is here at church the Pulpit bible lies bathed in light through the stain glass windows. Two story windows that speak of the cross and Jesus as our shepherd... what a wonderful prayer and thought that Christ may speak by the light of his spirit through his word.
Howard Carter is a Presbyterian Minister in his early fifties. He is the minister at St Peter's Presbyterian Church Ellerslie Mt Wellington. A congregaion that is wanting to face the challange of being Christ's body in a twenty first century, multi-cultural, multi-generational, suburban environment. "it's challanging", says Howard, "I feel totally inadiquate, but rely on Jesus, who is able to be strong in my weakness".
Yes he's married to Kris and has four children. So he'sboth blessed and busy.
Howard posts the messages he preaches on Sundays (the long posts with heaps of images), the occasional reflection, prayers he writes for services (when he's in a liturgical mood) and movie review.
