Read a great article yesterday, with a good attention grabbing title, written particularly for preachers. If you preach I think it’s worthy of your consideration…it reminds us of a few basic guidelines just in case we’ve forgotten about them.
There is a very good post on Apologetics Press about the role of men and, particularly, women in the church. It’s a lengthy read due to the nature of the topic but it’s an article that can be gleaned for notes; especially the section on the “office of a deaconess” in case you’re not familiar with the typical arguments presented with that topic.
For those of you who are interested in adding some older circulated books of the spiritual nature that are sourced and written by various authors about various topics to your personal library, you can check out this website that I found a couple of weeks ago. The site has a long list of titles (literally hundreds of them) and the vast majority of them are under 5$. According to the site’s host, Michael Wilk, these books are coming out of his personal library that he’s looking to clear out. P.S. – I’m not getting any kick-backs here; I just know there are several book chomping readers that browse the pages of TFR and I thought some might be interested since the site has books and other materials that I’m sure are out of print by now, thus making the materials difficult to find but not necessarily “old” or useless in scope.
Speaking of TFR, some of you regular readers here may not be familiar with TFR’s good ole’ buddy from the American west coast, and former “Twice Blessed” article writer for Forthright Magazine, Don Ruhl and his blog-site called “Email Devotionals“. I know it’s easy to get bogged down with daily articles in your email in-box, but with Email Devotionals, Don keeps achieving the same goal that he accomplished with Forthright – two, quick and to the point Bible based articles every day.
If you ever know of a good website associated with the brotherhood with resources worth passing along, make mention of it in the comments. Someone might be blessed with it!
