Weekend Update is simply a number of links that I think would be helpful and fun for ministry leaders.
Glory Plodding / I LOVED this article by Kevin DeYoung. “What we need are fewer revolutionaries and a few more plodding visionaries. That’s my dream for the church — a multitude of faithful, risktaking plodders.”
Faithful Sermon Preparation in Busy Ministry, Part 1 | Part 2 / Lots of practical advice here.
A Defining Moment in Becoming a Man / Crawford Loritts shares a great defining moment he had as a boy when he heard his dad say, “That boy one day is going to be somebody’s husband and somebody’s father. There are going to be people depending on him. He has got to learn how to do what he has to do and not what he wants to do.”
3 Lessons from My First Year of Fatherhood / Mark Andress shares what he’s learned so far.
Freedom Really is Free / “In response to God’s grace, we think we need to become religious…that somehow we can earn and pay back the gift of salvation that God gave us…the only problem is that God isn’t looking to barter with us, he truly wants us to enjoy the gift he gave us.”
Les Misérables Official International Trailer / I.Cannot.Wait.For.This.Movie. This is the first trailer I’ve seen with Russell Crowe singing.
