I hadn’t previously planned on it, but on Saturday, I received a text asking me to preach at Oasen near Tonsberg at 5PM on Sunday. This meant a slight rearrangement of my travel plans but I caught a bus and got off on the side of the road at the Shell station about a mile uphill from the SBI and the church, Oasen. I won’t say much about this as I have often reported on ministry at Oasen.
SBI (Smyrna Bible Institute, Vale, Norway)

Smyrna has experienced some leadership change with a new Headmaster, Kjelle. This has left things rather up in the air. Using the oft repeated phrase I learned from Tim Freeman, “New man, new plan.” This means a time of transition so the enrollments were down from previous years. Yet, the students turned out to be enjoyable and good listeners. I once again taught on “Contemporary Evangelism Methods” or “Communicating Christian Thought in a Post Christian / Post Modern World.”
