Three notable articles I read this week:

Jamie BrownWhen your congregation isn’t singing: 15 questions. Most churches struggle with congregational singing, which means this article is most likely relevant to you. As a supplement to Jamie’s article, you can also listen to this podcast with Mike Harland about congregational singing.

Scott DouglasWhen HBR met Scripture. “Remember leaders, our capacity to lead and influence others starts and ends with a hard look in the mirror of who we are. When we see stories of spiritual leaders (both pastors and prominent Christians in the public eye), we’re forced to look at ourselves and pray the words of David in Psalm 139 ‘Search me and know my heart, try me and know my thoughts. And see if there is anything grievous in me, and lead me in the everlasting way.’”

Washington PostTennessee governor vetoes bill making Bible the official state book. “Tennessee would have been the first state to have the Bible as its official state book, had the measure been signed into law.”


Three people worth following:

I could listen to these three preachers all day long. And you wouldn’t go wrong if you did.

Jimmy Scroggins. Jimmy is the lead pastor at Family Church in West Palm Beach, FL area. You can connect with him via Twitter or at his website. You can listen to his sermons here.

Adrian Rogers. Though he passed away in 2005, you can still listen to Adrian’s sermons through Love Worth Finding. He was the pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, TN from 1972 to 2005. You can follow Love Worth Finding on Facebook and Twitter. You can listen to his sermons here.
