The ideological landscape in this country is only going to become more diverse, and both the religious and irreligious are wise, I think, to commit to a peace treaty of sorts in order to promote a culture of understanding amidst disagreement. Like the characters in The Newsroom, I’m on a mission to civilize. Is it a bit quixotic? Sure it is. But as polarization increases, the religious and irreligious alike must find peace.

My goodness, this is funny:
Some bosses are leaders, but not all of them. It is possible to be a boss and not be a leader, or be a leader without being a boss. Someone may be in positional authority but not have influence, respect, or the ability to lead. And many people are able to lead and influence others without being in an official “leadership position.” Here are ten differences between a boss (someone who is only a boss) and a leader (who may also be a boss).
Being a pastor is not a walk in the park by any means, but it is wrong to say a bunch of them are quitting because it’s too tough.
Statistics do show us, however, that though pastors do not jump ship from the ministry as often as some claim, the burden of ministry can be difficult to bear.
There are plenty of important issues that I have also refrained from writing about for this reason, but there’s more to it than this. The younger women have offered some great resources to help Christians who are beginning to learn more about the Christian life of faith and obedience. But I long for more women to write with some weightier teaching. Because older women have lived through experiences such as Lisa shares, they have hopefully dug deeper in the Word and have substantial and rich teaching they could now contribute.
Is the digital deluge beginning to abate? After years of digital tsunamis sweeping everything (including ourselves) before them, are we seeing the tide turning? Is some sanity returning to our use of digital technology?
