Theology/Christianity:

What has gone wrong? At the heart of the mess is a simple phenomenon: the churches seem to have lost a love for and confidence in the Word of God. They still carry Bibles and declare the authority of the Scriptures. They still have sermons based on Bible verses and still have Bible study classes. But not much of the Bible is actually read in their services. Their sermons and studies usually do not examine the Bible to see what it thinks is important for the people of God. Increasingly they treat the Bible as tidbits of poetic inspiration, of pop psychology, and of self-help advice. Congregations where the Bible is ignored or abused are in the gravest peril. Churches that depart from the Word will soon find that God has departed from them.

The debate between paper books and e-readers has been vicious since the first Kindle came out in 2007. Most arguments have been about the sentimental versus the practical, between people who prefer how paper pages feel in their hands and people who argue for the practicality of e-readers. But now science has weighed in, and the studies are on the side of paper books.

  • Helpful advice and counsel for the first year of pastoring a church. Written by Phil Newton.  Additionally, you may want to check out this podcast which discusses the “ten most frequent questions pastors have.”  Thom Rainer is the host. The following are the questions:

    Where do I begin to lead my church toward revitalization? What do I do about our aging church facilities? How do I handle church financial issues? How do I handle conflict and personnel issues? What is the best leadership structure for a church? What are the best practical ministry tools? How do I establish a vision for my church? How do I deal with power struggles in the church? How do I lead change in the worship services? Can I survive?
