A few interesting stories from around the web…
- Ed Stetzer has an interesting article on the ‘rock star’ pastor. I don’t always agree with Stetzer, but I think he touches on something that can happen in a church regardless of size. In addition to his solutions, I might suggest that the mission of the church has been lost in the current climate – we are trying to cope with being Christians in a consumerist culture, whereas the church should be about building disciples to live out a Christian culture.
Did God Really Say? answers its own question with a strong affirmative, and it warrants attention by pastors and laypeople who wish to understand the inerrancy debate and defend the trustworthiness of Scripture.
- The review highlights strengths and one major weakness of this book. Sounds like a worthy item on inspiration and inerrancy in spite of its weak point.
- A brief observation about changes at Tennessee Temple and Highland Park Baptist Church by a Southern Baptist with some familiarity with the school. His perspective is definitely that of an outsider. Mark this one down as “interesting,” can’t make much more of it than that.
- Very interesting collection of quotes on mega-churches. How often or how much are we trying to replicate this in our ‘mini-churches’?
