The Friday Bag

 

The Creativity of Rule-Breaking  – “The prevailing form of creative inspiration is imitation. We copy what others have done…”

Answering Questions “I was listening to a sermon by  Tim Keller  that addressed common objections to the Bible as God’s Word, and I thought he made a very clever point.   He has a way of turning an objection into a virtue”

Reflections on Leading your Family Well“All of us know tragic stories of wives and children of pastors, church planters, and missionaries who grow up to hate the church. These stories could have been avoided, in many cases, if the leader in the home had not neglected his family.”

Tuning the Preacher’s Ear – How good reading brings good preaching. “Preachers who read widely get the same benefits out of it as the rest of us, but their needs may be more acute.”

“Do not follow where the path may lead.  Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
Harold R. McAlindon
