What's coming?

'Strategies for winter' is one of the best things I've read on the times. Do read the 'Blizzard' piece first as it gives you the context. Good to read and reflect on with a leadership team, other pastors or folk running businesses/non-profits.

And the Lamb Wins

And the Lamb Wins: Why the End of the World Is Really Good News ...

I have often spoken here at the blog of a book written by a pal that I think might be a helpful read for you. Someone said recently that you should play word count bingo for how many times you get a text or hear said the words 'for such a time as this'. However, this book really will be a timely addition to your bookshelf.

I have seen utter nonsense posted on-line in 'This is what the Lord is saying' videos, as Pastor X from Tulsa Ohio tells you (wrongly) what God's up to. Steven, who is our Assistant Pastor here in Barnes has a sermon series brewing on all this as he gets more and more frustrated by some of the things he's hearing. As he told me this, I recommended Simon's book to him which he now has to help restore his sensibilities and his soul.

You would do well to get yourself a copy of  'And the Lamb Wins' to keep you Jesus-focused, Scripture-saturated and prayerful in these 'stay at home days'.
