Five From the Files

For the Weekend of December 5, 2020

We’ll return to the archives this week. Here are some great articles.

I believe that in the current climate in which we live that pastors need to rethink the issue of pastoral visits to single women, regardless of their age. Hospital calls are one thing, but going to the home of a woman alone is just not a wise thing. Dave Murray touched on the problem of being accused of sexual misconduct in this article, which should be heeded by anyone in pastoral ministry. (2012)

Author and Pastor Joe Thorn explained the what’s and why’s of worship in his church in this article. (2012)

It’s that time of year some pastors where some pastors struggle. Expectations are that we’re going to deal with Christmas themes, and while giving a whole month may not be the most necessary thing, sometimes it’s hard to come up with ideas. Here’s some help. (2012)

Peter Mead has some helpful tips on preaching the narrative portions of Scripture. (2012)

Burk Parsons shares some encouragement for parents whose children have walked away from the faith or have never trusted Christ in the first place. This is one to save and share as needed.

That’s all until Monday! Have a great Sunday!

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!
