Two Quick Reviews

Deep Ministry in a Shallow World.  Chap Clark & Kara Powell.This is a great resource.  Mainly because it asks the right questions.  I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to make their ministry more meaningful.  The current journey we are in our ministry is trying to make it deeper and stronger and better.  And I’m glad I came across this book when I did.   A New Kind of Youth Ministry — Chris FolmsbeeThis book looks at a lot of the stuff that youth ministries do, from events, to missions trips to worship etc. and Asks is there a better way.  The answer is always yes.  There is always a better way.  Folmsbee seems to be pointing out first of all that all we do needs to come from our heart and from our calling.  This book doesn’t do as much step by step kind of thinking as Deep Ministry does but it’s still worth the read.  It’s a quick book, and there are lots of great reminders of what Youth Ministry is really all about.   

Passion of Paul

So I just started reading Philippians in my Devo’s. And everytime I read this book I am amazed by Paul’s passion, perseverance, and hope. In Chapter one he says, “for me to live is Christ and to die is gain.” And he says that he is willing to continue to live so that he can do the work of Christ. So no matter what’s going on in his life, he is going to live for Christ. He’s writing this in prison. How incredible!

It’s those kinds of statements that just scream — KEEP GOING!!!

Thanks Paul.

Thank you Google

So I work between two different computers, so I do a lot of my writing on google docs.   Well I just want to thank google for making the  whole interface  friendlier.  It’s really great.

I wonder if they did this for the iPhone as Safari will be on the iPhone and there was no Safari support for google docs.  If so brilliant timing.
