This past week, I shared the following links on social media and I think they’re worth sharing here too:

This one hits close to home for me, but I know it does for others too. Christians should do everything they can do address this horrible tragedy.

Why Pastors Should Use More Historical Illustrations in Sermons

I’ve always used a lot of historical illustrations. I’ve been starting to rethink it, but this blog post made me see that perhaps it’s a good practice after all.

Why You Should Surround Yourself With More Books Than You’ll Ever Have Time to Read

I love books and I have a daughter who loves them too. She shared this link with me — it makes sense!
