online meanderings

God's bucket list  :-)

Success in ministry is dangerous, accountability doesn't work, and other thoughts on falling from grace - An important read for pastors and others.

What can happen when you love those who hate you? - Such an inspiring story. Paul Tripp.

How to read the Bible every day - Some good suggestions.

Responding to anxiety and panic - A lot of this sounds familiar - especially the "blinders". Very necessary.

7 signs your church is effectively reaching unchurched people - Most of them sound like bad things, so this is worth reading.

Some lies people tell you about infant sleep - Wish I'd read this, oh, about 15 years ago. (Although I think there's a lot to be said for lots of infant settling strategies - just don't expect them to "solve" every baby's sleeplessness.)
Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. - Wendy Mass

Well-meaning adults can easily destroy a child's love of reading: stop them reading what they enjoy, or give them worthy-but-dull books that you like, the 21st-century equivalents of Victorian "improving" literature. You'll wind up with a generation convinced that reading is uncool and worse, unpleasant. Neil Gaiman
