What has happened to the gospel meeting? Sidelined, replaced or cancelled in many places, can a case still be made for holding a gospel meeting? After 60 years of full-time gospel preaching, Norman Crawford (1927-2013) spoke at a conference on the topic of “the gospel meeting” and provided a positive case from 1. the words used in the New Testament and 2. from the history of apostolic outreach in the book of Acts. Essential listening. Readings: 1 Tim 3:14-16, 1 Thess 1:6-10 1 Cor 1:17-18, 21-23, 2:1-5).
