Rev. Jeremiah Gibbs explores the changing tide within evangelicalism of supporting women in ministry, on his blog.
Elizabeth Glass Turner shares how a missiological approach can transform small-town ministry, on Wesleyan Accent.
Michael Faye and Paul Niehaus talk about how we should trust the poor to make decisions, and their ministry to people in Kenya and Uganda is doing just that, on the Faith & Leadership blog.
Tony Woodlief speculates, with a distinct and raw tone, on how we might protect our children from violence and pornography, on Good Letters.
Dawn Duncan Harrell shares a whimsical post on Christian perfection – through the lens of Legos and Tolkien – on the Cultivare blog.
