If you lead something these four things are worth dwelling on for a moment.
I appreciated the post '7 things the church can't do for the pastor'.
I am enjoying reading 'The Pregnancy Book' and I would heartily recommend giving it to anyone in your church expecting a child.
Justin Buzzard has written an interesting post about pastors working a five day week like everyone else.
I am pondering this piece on why God doesn't remove sinful cravings. I am also enjoying reading J D Greear's book Gospel which someone gave me after church last weekend.
