Easter has come and gone, and with it a wealth of reminders about the significance of this yearly ritual of remembrance. The King We Needed, But Never Wanted by Marshall Segal was just what I needed to read.
In addition, a fresh reminder of the brutality of forgiveness was given by Richard Stearns in Slaughterhouse Gospel.
Jared C. Wilson writes an excellent primer for his soon to be released book. This great article takes the concept of the prodigal son as an individual and extends it to the church. A challenging read; When the Prodigal Church Comes Home.
Lastly, as a parent and church leader, I am always looking for ways to improve my communication. 7 Ways to Grow in the Art of Communication was a helpful and practical read.
