SermonBrowser beta now available

This is an old post. Please refer to the dedicated Sermon Browser page for the most up to date information.

Several weeks ago I mentioned that I was developing a plug-in to allow you to upload sermons into your WordPress blog. I’m delighted to say that the beta version of this plugin is now available for you to download.

As with all beta software, the normal caveats apply. The software isn’t fully tested, and may cause you problems. In particular, the database format may change between now and the release version, which could mean that any sermons you enter into the database would have to be re-entered later.

If you want to see what the plug-in would look like on your site, you can view it here on this test site. (The site has not yet been launched, and is still in beta itself!)

Audio blogging (Podcasting)

[display_podcast]Audio BloggingI’ve decided to experiment with Podcasting, and will be uploading an audio version of each of my posts, for a little while at least. If no-one listens, then I’ll quietly pull it, but it’s little extra effort, and maybe some will appreciate it. This post is not very exciting as a demonstration, but I’ve added audio to my previous post, so that will give you a little flavour of things to come.

I’ve grown to love podcasting, and have my MP3 player set up to download about 10 sermons a week from different sources: John Piper, Alistair Begg, Liam Goligher, Sinclair Ferguson and many others. It’s a joy to be able to listen to these men preach on my way to and from work.

Given the choice of listening to this blog or to these men, I know which I would choose! But I am grateful for those who trust me with their time in reading my thoughts here, and even more so to those who take the trouble to interact with my posts. I enjoy the art of blogging, and have greatly benefited from it. If Podcasting brings in a few more readers who will help me to hone my writing and sharpen my mind, then the extra effort will be more than worthwhile.

My next few posts, by the way, will return to the question of whether Charismatics are really New Testament believers. We’ll look first at the gift of healing, and then I trust at territorialism. I look forward to hearing your comments on those subjects.
