In today’s service Christoph quoted a letter, written by Joel Edwards to the UK Church in 2015.
He was an influential leader in the UK church for many years and recently died of cancer on June 30th.
“Good translation mediates God’s brilliance and passion from the Church to the world without our baggage getting in the way. The cultural complexities of our day present us with an overflow of challenges. We could see the world’s hostility as direct threats to biblical truth: or we could see it as a world scrambling for meaning. Let’s reposition ourselves as courageous translators, helping people understand what God is still trying to say.”
