My name is Chris Thomas. I’m a fortunate husband, a father of three and Dad to five. I’m an advocate of foster care as an expression of the gospel. I’m a pastor at Raymond Terrace Community Church, a regional church based in the Hunter Valley, Australia. I mostly write about the gospel and how it informs both work and rest.

Listen Well—Speak True

Listen Well—Speak True

I am all for the careful study of God's Word. Yet even in that language—"the study of God's Word"—it is possible to misconstrue the ultimate aim of the discipline.

We read. We study. But why?

Isn't it so we might hear the voice of God?

All study of God's Word is an endeavour to listen well, in order that we might speak true.

To this end, one of the more significant and accessible tools I have used has been Bible Arcing, a method of study designed to help you hear the voice of God in his Word.

I highly recommend their online courses, and regularly use their tools and resources.
