Creative Ministry Method of the Day
Here is a memorable ministry idea to brighten up your Sunday services, and one bound to keep your flock alert and engaged. It is all the more effective as it is of ‘the Holy Spirit told me ...’ variety. Yes, I'm talking about the 'anointed preacher kick in the Christian's face' manoeuvre.
The wimps on the Methodist blog, connexions, are all upset at Todd’s behaviour. But over here in Southern Germany, I think it is fair to say that a broken nose and a split lip is evidence of a rousing service. Especially if the meeting was ‘ecumenical’. Nothing like the inner release of slamming a chair across your brother head, especially if you came to church tense. And was it not Charles Wesley who once penned the memorable stanza: ‘Smack him with the Hymnal, and if that doesn’t work, try the edge of the church bible’?
I actually know very little about Todd Bentley, and I'd be interested to hear what people think about his ministry and his quite astonishing healing claims. It all sounds rather Smith Wigglesworthian!
