Weekly Wraps (September 12-18)

Dave Harvey on leadership, John Piper on Peter’s escape from prison, Michael Oh on being a nobody for Jesus, and et cetera.

1. The Call to Ministry and the Leadership Moment (Dave Harvey) – Harvey blogs on leadership. He wisely writes: “Our leadership moments come in smaller and more frequent doses. They’re mundane, obscure, sometimes even boring…Anyone who steps into the call of pastoral ministry quickly realizes that the real work of leadership unfolds in the ordinary responsibilities of life.”

2. The Prison Gates Opened of Their Own Accord—Really? (John Piper) – Piper blogs on Peter’s escape from prison. Yes, mindless obstacles will not stop us!

3. Come Be a Nobody for Christ (Michael Oh) – Oh blogs on being nobodies for Jesus. He writes: “I believe that Jesus Christ is calling for well-trained, well-educated, godly, capable, wise, talented nobodies.”

4. When God’s Will Isn’t Clear (Jon Bloom) – Bloom blogs on making decisions. He writes: “Our love for him and his kingdom will be revealed in the pattern of small and large decisions that we make.”

5. Minimizing Views of God Don’t Advance the Mission (John Piper) – Piper blogs on God “taking a risk.” He responds to a quote by Alan Hirsch and Michael Frost. Interesting!
