Ice Skating

After a rather intense week pastorally, it was good to have a nice family day out at Bristol Ice Rink. I haven't ice skated for more than twenty years. Much to my surprise, I didn't fall over once, which proves that cessationists are wrong!

I used an ice skating illustration preaching on 1 John 2 yesterday. The Christian keeps aiming for 6.0 although he doesn't attain it. You'll appreciate the thought, perhaps.

I don't think that I would have got 6.0 on Saturday.

I used the experience in a children's talk to illustrate the perfect life of Jesus. I told the congregation that they would have been amazed to see me skating without falling over. But nothing is more amazing that Jesus' holy life. The illustration got me into a bit of trouble with the Mrs after church, because I gracelessly let slip that she kept crashing into the ice!
