Spiritual Retreats and Worship Workshops.

Since returning to Cape Town it has been awesome being invited to teach and facilitate at various church retreats and Worship Workshops and Conferences. Whilst the retreats have only been predominantly for Men's Groups or Ministries within the ambit of Christian Spiritual Formation and male spirituality, I do also enjoy taking couples. Regarding the Worship Workshops, this can either be for the ministry itself, or a worship-leader specific in-depth practical and spiritual workshop. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss the possibilities of us getting this together for your church!

Spiritual Retreats: These range from single-day retreats to, what tends to happen mostly, those that are given over a weekend. I am able to travel should you wish me to do so.

Worship Workshops: Those that tend to work the best are given over the course of a day. Most churches tend toward that being a Saturday. What we deal with is basically discovering our highest calling and how we best serve God within that given our talents, gifting, and leadership abilities for those who have been called to lead. "The power to bless the world around you is a direct result of your ministry to the Lord" (Gerrit Gustafson). In these workshops we speak into what worship is, our calling within it, the anointing, worshipping in "Spirit and in Truth", and, among other areas, worship and the Presence of God. This normally takes until lunch-time. After lunch we get stuck into the practical side of church worship. This moves from instrumentation, vocal, harmonies, utilization of 'light and shade' in what we do, planning worship sets, best key options, and a host of other areas. I always summarise what we have learnt and mail that through in PDF format to each participant. Should you wish me to attend practices after that, I will gladly do so. I look forward to hearing from you in this regard!

Jeremiah 17:7-8; “I will bless those who trust me. They will be like trees growing beside a stream – trees with roots that reach down to the water, and with leaves that are always green”.

"Your branches can only reach high if your roots are deep" (Brian Logue). A month ago I spent a weekend in Kimberley, and recall speaking to a farmer in the church I preached in on the Sunday morning of the drought they are having, and cattle that needed to be put down. When there is very little rainfall, whatever does fall soon dries up in the intense heat. Now 500km or so away, on the northern side of the Karoo the Orange Rivers flows with its waters coming from the mountains of Lesotho. Along its banks in the surrounding semi-desert rich greenery, flowers, and a variety of trees have abundant life. In fact, the trees grow so tall and strong (why) because their roots have tapped into the constant supply of water. That is how Jeremiah sees faith in God. In our text today he is not contrasting the good person with the evil one, but as someone who trusts in the power and love of God as opposed to the one who trusts in human power. Human power is as unreliable as rains in the Karoo. Faith in God taps into a river that never fails a source that spreads life wherever it runs, and that fills the surrounding area with hope and peace. How deep are your roots? Are they grounded deep enough into the grace and power of God to give you stability when the winds howl? Do others find peace and hope in the shade and strength you give out?
