Theo led our Scripture session on Sunday night, handling 2 Timothy 3:10-17. He showed us that Paul isn't just deconstructing that which is bad or to be avoided, but is positively exhorting Timothy to do good, learning from his own Godly example.
We're really grateful to Theo for leading us so well, and we're going to get him back to cover the rest of the passage soon. In the meantime, you can find his notes below!
We had a great time last night, beginning our study of Pneumatology - our theology of the Holy Spirit.
We began with a refresher on the doctrine of the Trinity, and then quoted Gregory of Nazianzus, describing God's faithfulness in revealing to his people the full truth about the Spirit over time. (In Gregory's words: "You see lights breaking upon us gradually...")
We then explored this history - how heresies about Jesus gave birth to heresies about the HS, leading to the Church honing its understanding about both. We then explored the full Scriptural witness to the Holy Spirit's person and ministry. In short? We cannot delight IN the Spirit, whilst neglecting the delight OF the Spirit - namely, the Word of God, both living and written.
Full notes available below, as well as two songs played during our time together.

On Sunday gone, Fiona led us through 2 Tim 2:14-26. It's a wonderful text in its own right, but Fiona encouraged us to see a Godly message to those who care for his truth.
We are to rightly handle his word, to do so with boldness, but also with kindness and gentleness.
Fiona has provided us with some notes, which you can find below. These contain a list of apposite quotations from the commentaries of Calvin and Henry, as well as her own commentary on 2 Tim 2:25-26 in particular.
