My wife and I just got back from a conference in Charlotte. Check out her post about what we did.


SBC Witness

April 5, 2008

Some of you may not know that I also blog over at SBC Witness. SBC Witness is a group blog of ten or so young pastors, professors, teachers, and students who are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. I believe that I am the only children’s minister. 😉

The topics that are covered on this blog delve into the political realm of the convention, where as Shanan is mainly an educational blog. Check for my posts on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month. This Friday I am going to be writing on the subject of families having a vision statement.

Here is another good list from Craig Groeschel

1. In what area of life have I lost my passion? (What can I do to get it back?)

2. If the enemy were going to “take me out,” what are my three most vulnerable points?

3. What new burden has God given me in the last year?

4. What have I unlearned that has made me closer to God?

5. What new discipline is God calling me to do?

6. What has God asked me to do that I haven’t yet done?

7. Is there something that I think about more than I think about pleasing God? (Money, possessions, ministry, family, recreation, something else.)

8. Do I have an increasing joy in serving Christ?

9. Am I handling the pain of ministry with integrity?

10. Am I still being persecuted for my faith in Christ?
