THE HUB CONFERENCE 2015 TALKS

HubHave a listen to these three talks from Ray Evans at The Hub Conference 2015 on leadership.

In words of David Shaw: “ok, stop what you’re doing, listen to these talks & pray God would raise up workers who get this stuff.”

YOU NEED A COMMONPLACE BOOK

Field NotesShawn Blanc:

“Commonplace books (or commonplaces) were a way to compile knowledge, usually by writing information into books. 

Such books were essentially scrapbooks filled with items of every kind: medical recipes, quotes, letters, poems, tables of weights and measures, proverbs, prayers, legal formulas. 

Commonplaces were used by readers, writers, students, and scholars as an aid for remembering useful concepts or facts they had learned. 

Each commonplace book was unique to its creator’s particular interests.”

[And if you need a commonplace book I’d recommend one of these Field Notes books]

WE ARE SHEPHERDS

file000819246371Daniel Akin:

“The great need of the hour is biblical, godly shepherds who find their job description laid out in Scripture and not some marketing guide or CEO manual.  

Contrary to what some leadership experts say,

we are shepherds;

we are not ranchers, managers, or corporate heads out to raise money, build buildings, draw crowds, and measure up to the world’s criteria for success.”

10 OF THOSE TUESDAY

GMHEvery Tuesday I want to highlight on this blog a great resource that is available from 10ofthose.com and some great deals for you to check out.

This week’s resource is a new resource for 6-11s called God’s Mighty Hand.

God’s Mighty Hand tells the story of how God rescued the Israelites from slavery in Egypt in an easy to read rhyming style with super illustrations from Jason Ramasami.

I’m looking forward to getting a copy to read to Harry, and I would not be surprised if copies are given out to children on their birthday by the Sunday School at Banstead Community Church.

God’s Mighty Hand is available to buy HERE.

And while you’re visiting 10ofthose.com you might like to check out the latest offers on a number of resources including a really encouraging book about how God is at work around the world.

OF COURSE HE’S A MAN OF PRAYER

file000640756889Charles Spurgeon:

“Of course, the preacher is above all others distinguished as a man of prayer. 

He prays as an ordinary Christian. 

He prays more than ordinary Christians, else he were disqualified for the office which he has undertaken.”
