Local Ministry – Bob Kellmen takes a look at an article I wrote recently in which I compared the local church and the speaking circuit. Bob gives a slightly different take.

Celebrity Pastors – Jonathan Leeman is grateful for the idea of celebrity pastors and in this article he explains why.

21st Century Excommunication – “When the Church of the Good Shepherd in Binghamton, N.Y., left the Episcopal Church over disagreements about what the Bible says about sexuality, the congregation offered to pay for the building in which it worshiped.
