Spill the Beans for Summer 2017

Written by Peter Johnston on .

Spill the Beans Issue 23

While many of us are just starting to enjoy Spring, others are already planning for Summer services. The Spill the Beans team has also been busy for this summer and just off my desk is Issue 23. This covers from Trinity Sunday to Pentecost 13, from 11 June to 3 September 2017. There is a short series on psalms, a series through Ephesians and then four weeks looking at the sacraments of baptism and communion. An interesting spread. Of course, while these are laid out in the book with specific dates, you could just use these small series at any time.

Those of you who have already used Spill the Beans know what a super resource this is, created by folks here in Scotland. If you have not yet then have a look at this sample.

If you'd like to download a full copy of Issue 23 for use in your church or personally, then click the button below. The cost is only £12. You can make a secure payment via PayPal and then an email with secure link to the download should wing its way to you. Please note that you can only download the file using this link three times, so please make sure you save the file to your computer or tablet.

Please follow the instructions carefully. The Adobe pdf file is approximately 6 MB so it will take some time to download.
