The Christian in Complete Armour

The Christian in Complete Armour

A few months ago, a friend recommended The Christian in Complete Armour by William Gurnall, originally published in 1669. Thankfully, it is still available today in print and digital. Charles Spurgeon said…

“Gurnall’s work is peerless and priceless; every line is full of wisdom; every sentence suggestive. The whole book has been preached over scores of times, and is, in our judgment, the best thought-breeder in all our library.”  —Charles Spurgeon

Compelled Podcast Interview

Compelled Podcast Interview

I was interviewed recently by Paul Hastings for his Compelled Podcast.  It is a privilege to share my story. You can listen using the player above or visit their website https://compelledpodcast.com/05-phillip-telfer-a-spiritual-suicide/

Who is Phillip Telfer? What is the core of my identity? I’m a child of God and a disciple of Jesus Christ. What you do in not as important as who you are. But in case you’re wondering about what I do, here you go…

Husband & Father: Mary and I have been married for 27 years and blessed with 4 children, one fantastic son-in-law, and a precious grand-daughter.

Minister: I serve as a pastor by day (and night) and I’m the founder and director of the nonprofit ministry Media Talk 101

Coffee Nut: When I’m not serving the flock, I’m serving good, home roasted coffee to family and friends.

Woodworker: Another hobby that has “turned” into a small family business is woodturning. Working with wood a little bit each week keeps me sane in this big world of personalities.

Film Festival Director: Since that didn’t seem like enough on my plate I also started the annual Christian Worldview Film Festival and Filmmakers Guild.

Author: When there’s time to spare, I love to take  a Pilot G2 gel pen and a pad of paper and write! I used to pour a lot of creative writing energy into music, and now that has shifted to the fun of writing a novel.
