EMA '14: John Woodhouse - The Practical Preacher (2)
John Woodhouse continues expounding 2 Samuel looking now at chapters 11-20 entitled "David's Disaster". He asks "Why do leaders who appear to promise so much always let us down, why do conflict suffering, injustice, anxiety and fear continue so persistently in human lives and societies?" and "Is it really possible for us to hope for the kingdom of God?" He encourages preachers that God's kingdom will come despite human wickedness, foolishness and weakness.

The Evangelical Ministry Assembly (EMA) is the Proclamation Trust's (PT) flagship gathering of over 1000 Bible preachers and teachers. It is for all those with responsibility for teaching and preaching the word of God in the local church. The PT recognises that such ministry is sometimes counter-cultural, can often be lonely and is always hard work. The EMA therefore is planned to both challenge and encourage preachers in the task to which Christ has called them and provide a place to meet others involved in the same ministry so that they can spur one another on.
The main aim of the Proclamation Trust is to teach the Bible to preachers in order that they can in turn teach it to others, as well as to provide a fellowship of like-minded evangelicals across the denominations for encouragement in this work. For more information see: www.proctrust.org.uk.
