A Weekly List of Links and Resources for Pastors
Here is this week’s list of links to articles and resources that you hopefully find helpful. On Wednesday I’ll be posting part 1 of a list of books that you would find useful on a book table, should you decide to go in that direction in your church.
Peter Mead has spent ten years blogging on BiblicalPreaching.net and has written some really helpful articles over the decade. Here is a look back on the last ten years of his writing.
This isn’t from a Christian website, but Lifehacker has some good stuff on productivity. Whether or not you’re in to New Year’s resolutions, this is helpful as it relates to making plans and setting goals.
Journaling Bibles are available in a number of translations. I am expecting one today that I can carry with me in my man bag, murse, or whatever they are called. John Piper writes about how to use these resources.
Some of your people work in high pressured work environments. In this article, Matt Rusten writes about dealing with anxiety in the workplace. This is one of those print-a-number-of-copies-and-put-them-out-for-your-people resources.
The aforementioned Peter Mead writes about using multiple passages to present what the Bible says about a main idea. Good stuff.
Eric Davis writes at The Cripplegate, and here’s an article on dealing with 2020 election stuff. As I wrote a week or two back, we need our people to learn how to navigate through this process and still maintain unity. But we also need our people to behave themselves toward those outside the church. I love the title: “2020 and Your Political Cage Match.”
Here’s an article you may feel hesitant to share, but you should. Nicholas Batzig tells us about 5 Ways to Pray for Your Pastor in 2020. Hey! Paul asked for prayer. Why can’t you?
Colin Adams writes about planning your preaching schedule to balance the diet of your people.
Jared Wilson is a good writer, and I can’t recall anything I’ve read by him that isn’t helpful. Here is an article that I saw today on Faithful Application of the Word of God. Must reading.
Genesis 6 talks about the “Sons of God.” If one of your people asked who these being were, what would you say? This is one of those “send to Evernote and hold for future reference” articles.
Burk Parsons writes a solid article on prayer. His focus is on our privileged standing as a child of God. Really good reading.
And that will do it for today. See you on Wednesday with a continuation of the discussion on a literature/book table for your church.
