Web Slinging 7.21.15

Here's what I caught right before I left for vacation as I swung around the web: Jen Thorn wrote on ugly days. She says, "The cross reminds me that Christ paid for those ugly days and purchased for me God's unwavering love." This is a short but extremely encouraging post. This is a great post for parents as well as pastors.

Jim Wideman had a post on the Orange blog about self-evaluation. He says, "If I can be honest with you, of all the challenges I have faced as a ministry leader, without a doubt my biggest challenge is to lead me." Leaders, this is well worth your time.

Relevant Magazine had a post on rest. It reads, "Rest doesn’t often come naturally—we have to be intentional about it. We have to set aside time to slow down, give ourselves a break and commune with God." This is a post we all should read and apply.

Gospel-Centered Discipleship had a post entitled, "The Gospel isn't a Cul-de-Sac". It says, " ... the gospel is not a cul-de-sac. It isn’t a safe sanctuary that separates you from the dangers of the world—it throws you into the world." Suburban parents and churches this could be a necessary read for you.
