Talks

Back to all talks

As part of our informal lunchtime worship services we offer a short talk based on a bible reading. These talks aim to make the bible relevant to working life in the City of London and beyond.

Joshua 3: 2-6

Scripture: Joshua 3:2-6

Preached by Jeremy Crossley on 7 January 2016 at the Woolnoth

Joshua 3:2-6

At the end of three days the officers went through the camp and commanded the people, “As soon as you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God being carried by the Levitical priests, then you shall set out from your place and follow it. Yet there shall be a distance between you and it, about 2,000 cubits in length. Do not come near it, in order that you may know the way you shall go, for you have not passed this way before.” Then Joshua said to the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” And Joshua said to the priests, “Take up the ark of the covenant and pass on before the people.” So they took up the ark of the covenant and went before the people.
