Tools of the Trade – Week of March 15, 2021

A Weekly List of Links and Resources Especially for Pastors

Happy Ides of March. If I remember correctly, this is the day that Julius Caesar was killed. Which reminds me of a joke from a kids’ joke book that I had years ago:

What did Caesar say after Brutus stabbed him? “Ouch.”

Here we go with some articles for this week:

Pastors are Paid to Stare Out the Window Good stuff from Jared Wilson.

Nathaniel Williams urges pastors to Preach to the People in the Room.

Michael Krueger shares some timely counsel about dealing with people who object of our views on morality.

YOUNG PASTOR ALERT! “Your Ministry Heroes May Be Right There in Your Church.”

Another gem from Jared Wilson. How does a guy manage to consistently write such good stuff? “Pastor, do you know that Jesus does not need your help?”

Here are Three Maxims for planning worship services. Do we really do enough thinking about why we do what we do?

Quiet small group studies are pretty much one of the worst things in the world. This article can help prevent that.

Peter Mead writes about the “Sweetest Agony” of ministry.

Chris Thomas urges that we not preach “Pre-Fab Packages of Frustration.”

Trevin Wax, always worth reading, suggests caution in the way we view the post-pandemic church.

We’ll close out this week with Peter Mead’s thoughts on sermons and prep time and why some need more than others.

Have a great week!

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!
