Here is what I've been reading as I've swung around the web. YouthMin.org had a great post about spiritual formation. It reads, "... spiritual formation is the Spirit empowered in which the believer's life is conformed to that of Christ's ... through the grace-empowered submission of his life to God's will, and in the context of biblical community." This is a good read for parents and pastors (of any ministry) alike.
The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW) had a great post on community. The post defines community this way, "True community is a group of Christians rallied around the person of Christ, loving one another through service, encouragement, and exhortation."
Jack Klumpenhower had a post on his site about the gospel and rain. He writes, "The gospel is rain. It comes to us from heaven and it sweetly, lightly revives crusty souls wherever it lands." Anyone who is around kids (parents, teachers) would benefit from this post.
Redeemer Fellowship's own Joey Cochran (church planting intern) had a post over at CBMW about the importance of being a spiritual leader at home. He writes, "Fathers - regardless of your rhythm - the most important shire of your day is not at work. It's when your whole family is together functioning as a little church in the home." Dads, this one is for you.
I hope you find these helpful. What are you reading around the web? Leave a comment for me to check out.
