Ephesus Guide. Next month I’m going to be visiting Ephesus, the historical site in Turkey. Whether you’re planning on going to this ancient city or not, the Ephesus Guide website is filled with helpful information and photos.

Personal and Ministry Accountability. Influential pastor and writer John Piper and the other pastors at his church fill out a form each week to increase their accountability in a variety of crucial areas. Quite interesting, I think. What do you think? (HT: Smart Christian)  Marcus Goodyear, of The High Calling, has a blog that examines various features of writing and blogging from creative perspectives. If you’re a blogger (or thinking of becoming one), I highly recommend this fascinating site.

No Whining!

Last night was Open House at my daughter’s school. If you’ve been a parent of an elementary school student, you know the drill: posters, artwork, files of assignments, meeting the teacher, etc. etc. As I examined the walls of my daughter’s classroom, my eyes beheld a wonderful sight. It was a large “No Whining” badge. How great! I wish I had a few of these, both to wear and to hand out to others. Yes, sometimes even I need to be reminded not to whine.

But now I’ve got to stop blogging and get back to finishing my sermon for this weekend. I always have to do a sermon. My church maaaakes me. It isn’t fair. Nobody else at church has to do a serrrmon. And they want a good one too. Every week. Waaaaaaaaaaaaah!

    Also, I read over the Pastor’s accountability form.

    Some of the items seemed pretty good. On the other had, there are a few things on there that I’d discuss with a trusted Christian friend, but I sure wouldn’t want left in print in a file cabinet somewhere.

Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
