Tools of the Trade For the Week of June 29, 2020

There were quite a few good articles and resources posted last week. Here are some that will be helpful in your ministry, either for yourself or to pass on to others.

Helping teens honestly face and deal with their doubts is one of the most important tasks a youth worker has. Here’s some help.

Pastors live with dreams of what God might do in the lives of their people. Whether trying to change a church culture or see change in the lives of our people, change is slow. But don’t give up!

This is one to share with your people. There will be a day when our struggle with sin will end, and what Paul writes about in Romans 7 will be over and done with. In the meantime be encouraged.

If you have people who are reluctant to return to church after the pandemic, this article might help you approach them.

“Exposition or Imposition? How Gospel-Centered Preaching Can Go Wrong.” John Piper writes about something we all need to think over.

My previous post was about Christians behaving badly on social media. Here’s a companion article with a catchy title. I’ve noticed several people writing about this recently. Maybe because there’s a problem? Yup.

And while we’re on that subject, I saw this title and thought it was a new book. However, it was written ten years ago. Yet it speaks directly to the problem of relationships and to some of the issues that have arisen because of social media.

This article by Don Whitney discusses how we can let our Bible reading guide us in our prayers. Helpful!

Stay up to date with the Supreme Court’s decision regarding LGBT issues.

Here’s an audio interview discussing “Preaching Over the Long Haul.”

Here is an article about how we should deal with the vast changes that have taken place in our world over the last few months. I’d recommend sharing this one with your people. Just send them the link!

Finally, here’s an article that will encourage those of you who are church planters – or feel like it!

Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by once again!

Married to Laura, with three adult children, 7 grandchildren. I’m an avid baseball fan, and I enjoy listening to audiobooks about military history, and reading Theology. I was ordained a Baptist pastor and served two churches over a 41 year period. After a three year hiatus I'm glad to be serving at Calvary Bible Fellowship Church in Coopersburg, PA. And I’m glad you stopped by!
