How To

IOS – Apple podcast player works well, i’ve heard

Android – Podcast addict works well for me. Can be set to download over night and be ready for the day. Speed can be set as well, I listen to my podcast at x1.3. Some people just speak too slow.

SERMONS

Why

Sermons are a great way for us to be interacting with God's word, to love and savor Jesus. The following three sermon libraries have helped me a lot in understanding the scriptures and also the helping me apply it.

Sermon libraries

  1. St Helens media
  2. Desiring God
  3. The Gospel Coalition

There are many more sermon libraries that can be used, I have however never not found a helpful sermon  on a topic from at least one of these. Please contact me if you feel any sermon libraries are to be added to the list.

Why - Listening to to audiobooks has helped me work through certain topics for a longer period of time, that I would not have been able to do with podcasts and sermons.
