Tools of the Trade for the Week of February 15, 2021

Here’s some must-reading that I’ve culled from various blogs over the last week or so:

Peter Mead, a regular each week, writes about 5 Aspects of Natural Delivery. Worthwhile for all of us who preach, but especially for younger guys trying to “find their voice.”

Here’s 2 minutes and 21 seconds of counsel by Adam McClendon called advice for a new pastor.

Trevin Wax, who also appears regularly on this blog, writes about ministry trends in this new year (2021).

Here’s one pastor’s reflections on why it is a privilege to be a pastor.

Peter Mead contributes more to those who preach by making five suggestions to make our preaching more fluid.

Stephen Wellum wrote a couple of articles on the need for a proper Christology. There’s one here, and another here.

Pastoral work is more than teaching and preaching. Pastors are shepherds, and Dave Harvey asks how we can know whether that’s a job we can do.

Michael Krueger has an interesting and helpful article on spiritual abuse.

How much time does it take for you to prepare a sermon? How long should it take? Peter Mead weighs in.

Tim Challies speaks to younger pastors and their preferences when it comes to church size.

David Mathis, with Desiring God, writes about he way Providence surprises us.

Finally, Matt Adams writes about the “Christian Life and Preaching.”

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!
