Saturday Snippets (July 10)

As well as reading a lot of books, I also read a ton of articles every week. Here are some of the articles that I’ve read recently and have found interesting, helpful, challenging and encouraging. I hope that they will be the same for you, my dear readers…

Faithful Leaders…

There are so many books out there on the topic of church leadership. Most of the are written by men who’ve been in ministry for years and they want to pass on the baton. in a way, Rico does that with this book.

I’m Praying for You

We all know that familiar saying “I’m praying for you”. Walk through church halls and you’ll hear it a lot. It’s shows up at the end of text messages, and in cards that come through the post.
