#1 If you’re a young pastor like me, read this. Seriously–The Glory of Plodding by Kevin Deyoung. My generation needs to hear it.
Don’t give up on the church. The New Testament knows nothing of churchless Christianity. The invisible church is for invisible Christians. The visible church is for you and me. Put away the Che Guevara t-shirts, stop the revolution, and join the rest of the plodders. Fifty years from now you’ll be glad you did.
#2 Speaking of something I needed to hear, John Koessler’s latest post, Attending to the Culture of Our Souls, is a great encouragement to me. I often struggle with this issue.
Perhaps the most productive decision you make today could be to engage in “a little studied retirement.” You might start by turning off the little sound on your computer that alerted you to this new post.
# 3 This is not good news for me, a Verizon guy.
It’s that time of year again: The weather is getting warmer, Apple‘s annual Worldwide Developers Conference is just around the corner, and rumors about the iPhone coming to Verizon are sprouting up.
Don’t believe it, Verizon fans. It’s unlikely that Steve Jobs will announce a Verizon tie-up when he gets on stage at the WWDC event on June 7.
# 4 Think: The Life of the Mind and the Love of God has a trailer out that is worth watching simply for the creativity of it. Watch it, and then consider flying me out to Minnesota to attend this October 🙂
