Links of the Week

  1. Mark Driscoll on The pastor and his wife get to pick their own friends Part 1Part 2 and Part 3. This is a helpful post as it is difficult to pick friends when you are a pastor or a pastor’s wife. People either stay away or they really want to be your friend, both because you are the pastor. Some good things here.
  2. John Piper on gay marriage. Some helpful biblical insights into this issue and what Scripture has to say about it and what our response as followers of Jesus should be.
  3. Ron Edmondson on Pastors learning to say “no.”
  4. Husband, Understand your Wife.
  5. Michael Hyatt on What are you doing to protect your marriage?
  6. Children are a glorious inconvenience. I love having our daughter Ava in the service each week. Is it hard? Sometimes. It is worth it for her to be part of the community, see worship, hear teaching, watch adults be the church? Yes.
  7. Are romance novels porn for women?
  8. I’m not a Christian, but I’m coming to your church this weekend. Great reminders for pastors and churches.
