  1. for I’d be interested in your thoughts on #49, I forget this is something some pastors do. #51 – what sources of news help a thinking pastor stay engaged and informed?

    • Stephanie – Thanks for your comment! I will plan to write about #49 and your addition #51 in the next couple weeks. (Right now I am trying to post just a couple days a week to keep it manageable. I hope to be able to increase frequency in the next couple months.)
      Please let me know if you have any other questions or thoughts. Thanks!
