Loving Your City – This is a convicting and encouraging post from the guys over at the Resurgence blog. There are many ways that we as the church can reach our cities and neighborhoods for the glory of God, and they give some great practical suggestions for doing just that.
Joshua Project – If you haven’t heard of Joshua Project, you should absolutely check them out. There is no other organization that I know of that is doing what they are doing. They provide a comprehensive, global perspective on the state of the thousands of unreached people groups of the world. They are concerned about the great commission on the global scale, and we should be too.
Desiring God Conference for Pastors – There are few conferences that I have looked forward to more than this one, the 2012 Desiring God Conference for Pastors: God, Manhood, and Ministry: Building Men for the Body of Christ. I can’t wait to listen to the audio from this conference. And men, I suggest you check it out.
Burning Out? – We talk a lot about ministry burn out in the church and this post tackles the issue well. If you’re struggling with burn out or counseling someone who is, you should check this out.

But we already know more than enough, and we have for a long time. We just don’t like the answers.
