3 Ways to Encourage Your Pastor – R.C. Sproul Jr. offers up three really good ways to encourage your pastor. As I read these, I realized that though I am a pastor, I ought to be more deliberate in encouraging the other pastors at my church!

Building Healthy Churches – 9Marks has just released a helpful new series of study guides along with some new books on church discipline and church membership. Westminster Books has it all on sale; now’s the time to stock up!

Jane Goodall and Worshipping Chimps – This is truly an odd article to find at Christianity Today. They interview Jane Goodall who says that chimps have souls and that they worship.

2012 Band of Bloggers – Just prior to T4G, I and a bunch of other bloggers got together to discuss the state of modern Christian blogging. The audio is now available if you want to listen in.
