Redcliffe's Chief of Sinners has struck again!
If a recent study showing that individuals from the IT-savvy generations can change media more than 27 times in a non-working hour is correct, then getting them to sit still and tune in to even a five minute homily, let alone a full-blown sermon which might run for anything up to 30 minutes, is virtually impossible.
The first rule of child psychology advises that the first thing you need to do is get the child's attention.
The same thing applies to dealing with those whose attention is split between Facebook, Twitter, email, texting, telephone calls, television and all those other wonderful essentials of modern life.
Paul Clark's surprisingly short, sharp and very pointed messages and thoughts grab the attention of those reading them. They can be used as discussion starters in studies, home groups, or even at the beginning of sermons, and they can challenge pre-determined thoughts and automatic behaviours that so often are our responses to daily stimuli.
But wait, there's more! As well as coming in book form, Paul's little gems are available on CD.
In this form, you can slot them into PowerPoint presentations and use them as a part of your overall media presentation.
They can also be used for slots on local radio as they come complete and ready to use.
Paul has already done the hard work in recording them and his voice is very radio friendly.
So, they're good for internal and external use, great sermon and discussion starters, individual meditations and studies, and not too shabby at all in the way they sound.
Living life at the top: 100 reflections on abundant life is great value, both spiritually and financially, and is highly recommended.
