Henry Gerecke
Further to my preaching a week past Sunday on ‘Our Merciful God’ here is the link to the American Lutheran pastor who ministered to the prominent Nazis at the Nuremburg War Trials  http://www.messianicgoodnews.org/henry-gerecke-chaplain-to-nazi-war-criminals/  Powerful stuff!

 

Iron Men Day (half day actually!) – Sheddocksley Baptist Church, Aberdeen –Saturday November 25 – 9.15 to 1pm
I was speaking to Christian Vision for Men’s Ricky Bain from Sheddocksley BC this week (he has taken over from Steve McGuire in covering the north of Scotland) and as we have supported CVM for a number of years as a church it would be good if a number of the guys were able to attend this event.

The blurb states, “Well we decided that actually getting a load of men together to worship God, have a laugh together and be inspired from the Bible is essential, so that’s what we want to do.  We have called these Iron Men days as we are also releasing a brand new book resource focused on how we can be forged as gospel men in today’s busy world.”
See http://cvm.org.uk/ironmen which includes a short video from Nathan Blackaby, Director of CVM.

Every Blessing,

Kenny
