Good Saturday morning to you! I pray you’ve had a great week. Saturdays should be a day of rest and preparation for worship on Sunday. I know that’s not normally the way it works, but I think it should. Along those lines I’ve collected several posts dealing with naps, sleep and what times leaders should wake up in the morning. They’re interesting. There are a few more posts dealing with leadership and pastoring and an important post from AllPro Dad on the devastating effects of pornography on our sons and daughters. Take some time to read these posts. Even though I don’t endorse everything in them, they’ll sure to benefit you as you seek to live and lead in this fallen world in which we live. Shine for Jesus today!

Good morning! I hope and pray that you’re having a great Saturday so far. Thank you for taking the time to check out this week’s list of posts I collected from my online reading this week. It’s certainly an interesting and eye-opening list. This week’s list begins and ends with two strong posts dealing with some very challenging and current issues we face in our society. These posts are not from “Christian” sources so make sure you understand that as you read them. There is a post detailing the rise of female pastors that’s important to read through the lens of scripture. Also in this week’s list are posts dealing with preaching and worship and the issues we face as pastors and parents. Enjoy and be blessed!
Good Saturday morning to you! I hope and pray you have had a great week and are ready to worship our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ corporately tomorrow with your church family. This week’s list begins and ends with posts by Dr. Churck Lawless. I try not to put two posts by the same site or author, but with my mind being focused on pastoral ministry this week, it seemed appropriate and good to share these two practical and helpful posts. There is also a post by a Daniel Dickard on evangelistic preaching that is also well worth your time. In between are posts dealing with politics, preaching memorial services and how to reach and keep millennials. And, since this was Valentine’s Week there is a post on defining love that you’ll want to check out. As always, just because a post is found here doesn’t mean that I endorse anything or everything about the post or its author. I share these because they grabbed my attention and I believe they will be helpful in your life and walk as a Christian. Have a great Saturday and make sure to be in your small group and worship tomorrow!

It’s an exciting weekend here at the Whitt house! I’m looking forward to introducing our prospective Associate Pastor of Education, Outreach & Growth to my Abilene family. I’m trusting that the Lord will use this young man and his gifts to help us in our task of connecting people to Jesus, His church, our community, and the world. Take a few minutes today and peruse this week’s Worth the Read list. There is quite a bit of hubbub over immigration, and that’s represented in several articles below. There are also several other posts that deal with issues facing the church today. As always, read through the articles and pick out the bones. I don’t endorse every writer or what they’ve written. These posts are listed here to help you walk wisely as you sojourn this fallen world. Enjoy and be equipped!

It’s Saturday again, and I know that you’ve likely had a very busy week. Now is the time to take a break and enjoy a little reading that will help you understand a lot of what had happened in the world this week and how you can make the most of your time, life and ministry. This week’s first post deal with deacons and the important and invaluable role they plan in the life of a pastor and church. The last post gives some very practical ideas on how to plan the best vacation ever. Don’t miss that one. It’s a keeper! In between are some unexpected posts and a few to help you gain perspective as a Christian passing through this world. I pray you are edified and equipped by this week’s post, though I don’t endorse every author or everything they have written.
