Links of the Week

  1. Dustin Neeley on What I learned about ministry from The Hurt Locker.
  2. Long live the sermon. Here is a great resource on why preaching matters, how to put together messages that will impact people and it’s only $9.
  3. How to cut your to-do list in half. This is a great concept.
  4. Tim Stevens on The pain of growth. This is a great post and really resonated with me as we have been talking as an elder and staff team about growth and how we continue growing at Revolution. This is right on.
  5. Mark Driscoll’s Date night tips. Some great stuff here. Katie and I love Thursday nights for date night.
