With some pretty massive things happening this week, here is a short list of articles to check out. I particularly thought the evangelism article was spot on.
Can we still weep together after Orlando? – pretty big news.
Meditation on Orlando shooting – “…one way we obey Jesus’ command to love enemies, even murderous ones—whether they target us or those with whom we sympathise.
Why The Church Bulletin is the Worst Way to Recruit Youth Ministry Volunteers – This is a good reminder that we need to work hard to get volunteers and this isn’t just a youth ministry thing but church wide.
The Problem with the Facebook Algorithms – “Read news from your desired slant over and over again and you create a self-righteous loop: You are right. They are crazy. You are right. They are crazy.”
Every day Evangelists – the task of evangelism isn’t just for paid “professionals”.
Preach the Bible, Not Your Dog (2.57min) -This is a good reminder for preachers, not to just perform for an audience but to work faithfully for God.
