I’ve some key adjustments to my blog that I hope are helpful to my readers.
1. Now that I’m a little more familiar with this environment and on the advice of folks at our annual board retreat, I’m opening up new posts and pages for comments. I have received some feedback by email and I am looking forward to more interaction.
2. I am adding a new nested category, called church leadership under church notes for posts that are especially relevant to that topic.
Leadership is an area that I have studied and read after extensively in the last decade. As a young pastor I did not understand its importance. Bible college and seminary education was then and is still woefully inadequate in this area.
But now as a seasoned pastor, I realize that leadership is central to how a pastor encourages others in ministry (Eph. 4:11,12) and accomplishes more than he or she can accomplish alone. Through this new category on my blog I hope to help younger pastors and lay leadership avoid my earlier error and find helpful insights. I will also seek to review some of the best books I have read in my book review pages as well.
