There is no difference: Kurrajong Ministry Training Fund keynote address

The Ministry Training Fund is a brilliant initiative of Kurrajong Anglican Church. The fund is designed to encourage and financially support people from the church who are undertaking training in Christian ministry (e.g. at theological college, Youthworks, MTS). The inaugural dinner for the fund was held on 11 August 2012. I had the privilege of being asked to be the keynote speaker.

I had a very personal interest in speaking at this dinner! People at Kurrajong Anglican Church have formed a significant part of the supporter base for our family over the last 3 years as I’ve been doing biblical studies in England. And the reason we went to England in the first place was to learn and be trained to teach and train future gospel ministers to understand the Bible in depth themselves!

I chose to speak on a passage which was the basis for a central part of my PhD thesis: Romans 10:9-15.

    Hi there! I’ve been looking at your Greek Morphology PDF – a great resource. Any chance you have it in actual Greek font? It’s a bit hard to read. Thanks!

    • Hi David, thanks. The font needs to be downloaded and installed from the Teknia site. Does that help?

      • David Essing

        I see, thanks! If I install the font it will “translate” the Greek? It’s in pdf though – won’t I need the doc in word or something? Thanks ever so much.

      • David Essing

        Gosh, I’m not sure that just went through.

        Just in case: so if I download and install the teknia font it will “translate” the Greek into Greek fonts? It’s in a pdf though. Won’t I need it in Word or something? Thanks ever so much! ~david

        Hi David – thanks. Don’t know if my previous replies went through.

        The technia link you kindly provided yielded a strange .tiff.sit file? I downloaded the Mac version – something wrong with the link I think.

        In any case, it’s a PDF – if I had the technia font it wouldn’t change the fonts in the PDF, right?

        thanks ever so much!

      • I don’t have a Mac, but I assume that if you want to install the font, you have to follow the instructions on the website I linked to.

        On a PC, once you’ve installed the font, you just have to close the PDF and open it again, and it should work. I assume the same is true on a Mac.

        By the way, the settings on my blog mean that I need to approve a comment before it appears; that’s why your previous comments didn’t go through instantly.
