Our first post on Kingdom Upgrowth went live one year ago today. I wanted to take a moment to say “thank you” to everyone who takes the time to follow this blog. I have appreciated all the emails, comments, and interactions I’ve been privileged to share with you regarding the postings here.
I still feel as strongly as ever about the importance of spiritually-formed leaders and finding the best ways we can to grow healthy congregations. I look forward to continued learning and growth with your help. Here are ten of my favorite posts I composed over the last year.
- Spontaneity and Spiritual Growth
- Seven Mistakes Your Church Should Make
- Enneagram Resources
- Make Serving a Joy: Leading By Gratitude
- How the Old and New Testaments Work Together
- Responding to Criticism
- 3 Ways to Engage the Longer Texts of the Bible
- My Favorite Reads of 2018
- On Growing as a Messenger
- Taming the Elephant: The Value of Meekness
I have especially enjoyed the conversations with my Research Spotlight interviewees. These interactions have been rich and thought-provoking and I look forward to more of these in the near future.
If you have been following via email and haven’t stopped by the website in a while, I would be glad to have you drop by and have a look. I have been expanding links to the podcast, content guide, and other sites of interest.
I’d like to hear from you
Is there a topic you’d like me to write about? Is there a question you have about the Bible, or church life, or how to work through difficult situations? I’m always glad to hear what interests you. I want this site to be useful and your input helps me keep it on target.
Thank you so much for reading my blog. I look forward to another great year.
