Powerpoint Edinburgh: An apology

Louis Theroux and Luis Palau

In common with all other Scottish Christian blogs, I may have given the impression that I thought that the Powerpoint Edinburgh committee had lost their minds in inviting such a controversial public figure to speak at this season’s opening event at St Thomas’, Glasgow Road, tonight.

Blog post titles such as “Theroux a glass darkly”, “When Louis met Jesus” and “Is this the start of another Weird Weekend?” may have contributed to readers’ belief that I had a low opinion of the committee’s choice of speaker. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I would like to make it clear that I have always believed in the gospel-led choices of the Powerpoint committee. Their dedication to spreading the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through worshipping God, listening to some exceptional spoken words and playing some intriguing games with a tenuous link to a so-called “theme” is unrivalled.

Besides, it turns out that it’s not TV broadcaster Louis Theroux that’s coming to speak tonight, but Argentinian evangelist Luis Palau.
