In this episode we continued our conversation with Joelle Kenny, a Bible teacher living in Ratanakiri province in Northeastern Cambodia. We discussed the story of Jesus healing a demon-possessed man in Mark 5, and how that story has helped to change the lives of women in a culture which lives with a genuine fear of the Devil’s power. We also discussed Bible studies more generally and how to keep going as a Bible teacher even when it’s difficult.

In today’s episode we spoke once again with Dick Lucas, former rector of St Helen’s Bishopsgate in London. Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, Dick Lucas became known across the world for his distinctive style of expository preaching, a style which was renowned for faithfulness to the Biblical text, and a high quality of public speaking.  
Today, Tiff and Leo sat down with Dick to ask him about how he came to develop his style, what his practice of studying the Bible looked like, as well who influenced him in his work.

Dick Lucas was the rector of St Helen’s Bishopsgate for 34 years from 1961 to 1995 in which the church grew from a handful of people to one of the largest churches in the church of England. 
Amongst the many initiatives Dick pioneered was a midweek ministry to the workers in the City of London which saw hundreds of attendees every single week and continues even today in Bible talks across the capital. In 1986 Dick started the Proclamation Trust which trains and encourages ministers in expositional Bible Teaching; the style of preaching which Dick himself became internationally renowned for. Now age 98, Dick still regularly records content of his own Bible study and teachings.  
In this episode Tiff and Leo spoke to Dick about the story of how his ministry began, how it grew, and the principles he learnt along the way. You can find a catalogue of Dick’s teaching on the St Helen’s Bishopsgate resource library: https://www.st-helens.org.uk/resources/dick-lucas/
