A La Carte (3/29)

The Pastor’s Worst Enemy - Here’s a very good word from David Murray about the greatest enemy a pastor will face in his ministry.

John Piper’s Leave - John Piper just announced that he will be taking a lengthy leave of absence. “I asked the elders to consider this leave because of a growing sense that my soul, my marriage, my family, and my ministry-pattern need a reality check from the Holy Spirit. On the one hand, I love my Lord, my wife, my five children and their families first and foremost; and I love my work of preaching and writing and leading Bethlehem. I hope the Lord gives me at least five more years as the pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem.”
