As we wrap up our week, let’s take a couple of minutes to review a few points of interest. Here’s the lineup:
(1) Our dear friend Kathy, of Beauangel’s World renoun, shares pleasant memories of her life’s journey HERE. She also has something to say about an upcoming football game, but she’s got the outcome reversed. Don’t anybody tell I said that, though.
(2) I mentioned my visit to Lewes, Delaware, the first town in the first state, a few posts back. This really is an interesting and historically significant place. You can get a sample of what I mean by clicking HERE.
(3) Mike Cope shares some interesting thoughts on the process of sermon preparation HERE.
(4) In his book that explores vocational holiness called “Under the Unpredictable Plant”, Eugene H. Peterson shares his perspectives on pastoral ministry. He says, “…I want to study God’s word long and carefully so that when I stand before you and preach and teach I will be accurate. I want to pray, slowly and lovingly, so that my relation with God will be inward and honest. And I want to be with you, often and leisurely, so that we can recognize each other as close companions on the way of the cross and be available for counsel and encouragement to each other.”
(5) In my previous post I suggested a learning exercise in the Book of Proverbs. In the event that you are simply too busy to tackle this task, here is a link to a viewable and downloadable document that contains a list of these verses. Just click HERE.
(6) John Roberts has some really interesting and informative posts on the Gospel of Luke. You’ll be blessed if you visit his blog! Just click HERE.
(7) I remain excited about the prospects of ShoutLife, a Christian alternative to MySpace, catching on. Keith Lancaster gives a bit of background and links HERE.
(8) Here’s a blog that is sure to bring a smile to your face and (for the men in the bunch) have you stroking your beard in serious thought from time-to-time. The author is both witty and sincere. She sometimes flutters about like a butterfly on a pleasant summer’s day. At other times, she delves deeply into a subject, provoking serious reflections and responses. If you haven’t discovered it yet, check out Lisa’s blog by clicking HERE.
Blessings to all,
May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.—2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
