Editor’s Introduction

Welcome to YPS November 2019.

By the time you read this, we will be well on the way into winter. I like most of the seasons of the year despite the changeable weather we experience in the UK. Some people don't like winter but I like the opportunity (usually after a busy day and evening) to get the fire going, put a few lamps on and pick up a book or magazine. I love reading, and, if you visit my home, you will find ample evidence that books are a significant part of my life – whether in electronic or printed form.

As you pick up this issue of YPS, I hope that you can take the time to explore the articles and the scriptures that lie behind them. All of our writers aim to communicate God's word to you and to focus on biblical truth.

Discover the life story of another priest with Jeremy and follow Eric's flow of argument as he outlines how we can make progress as believers through 'reading'. You might benefit from Andrew's article on how you can be persuaded by the scriptures or enjoy considering the next stage of how God has conducted His affairs with the human race. The final article about the 'Fruit of the Spirit' is in this issue but, don't worry, we have many more articles on different topics and issues to bring to you in 2020.

In the meantime, I trust that the Lord will bless His word to you,

Yours through grace, 

Stephen Baker
