Reflections on a Planned Parenthood Protest | John Piper

5 Myths and Truths in Loneliness | TGC
“Having been an ordained minister for 32 years and licensed psychologist for 18, I have had the privilege of being entrusted with many personal stories of loneliness. As individuals from all walks of life have opened up with their struggles, I’ve been deeply affected from two different directions. From a psychological perspective, I’ve been struck by the depth of pain humans encounter in their experience of loneliness. And from a theological perspective, I’ve been amazed at how significant human loneliness is to the triune God.”

Kindle Books

The Messianic Hope: Is the Old Testament Really Messianic? by Michael Rydelink $2.99. A book I learned a lot from.

The Pastor’s Ministry: Biblical Priorities for Faithful Shepherds by Brian Croft $3.99. My endorsement:

What a helpful book! Ten clear pastoral priorities, each one biblically grounded and practically expounded. This book will be a huge blessing to many shepherds and even more sheep. I wish it had been around when I was starting out in ministry twenty years ago
