It has long been my practice to read–to read regularly and widely what other people are learning and sharing about the church, its mission, and its engagement with the culture. It is my goal to help churches be faithful and fruitful on the mission field where God has planted them and to make a “salt and light” difference in the world.  Although I do not endorse everything the blogger shares or stands for (or the blog site for that matter), when I see thoughtful and helpful posts I try to pass them along.  Here are some of the best I have read so far that relate to 2018 and beyond:
