Hi subscriber,

Here's a thought, a quote, and a resource I wanted to share with you this Thursday.

I received an email from a church planter’s wife yesterday.

“Young churches work best through momentum. We realized midsummer that we'd essentially be needing to restart our church if anything went back to normal. And the fact is, we've been running a sprint for the last five years and simply cannot keep up that pace. I know you, too, must know the exhaustion — maybe not with ministry, but with much of life.”

“My husband has resigned from his job as a pastor and is looking for another pastoral job.”

Pastors aren’t alone in feeling tired, but it’s worth praying for them.

October is Pastor Appreciation Month. Please don’t forget to encourage your pastor with a handwritten note, and pray for your pastors’ family.

“I pray earnestly that God will raise up today a new generation of Christian apologists or Christian communicators, who will combine an absolute loyalty to the biblical gospel and an unwavering confidence in the power of the Spirit with a deep and sensitive understanding of the contemporary alternatives to the gospel; who will relate the one to the other with freshness, authority, and relevance; and who will use their minds to reach other minds for Christ.” John Stott, Your Mind Matters [affiliate link]

Appsumo is a site worth following. It offers lifetime deals on software, courses, and ebooks with a 60-day money-back guarantee. You can pick up some good deals from this site, although you’ll want to be choosy.

One of their current deals is Sticker Mule. You can get 50 custom die-cut stickers for $9 with free shipping. I’ve bought this deal before, and they’re great. It’s a fun purchase. Check it out if you’re interested.
Thanks for reading!
