five on Friday

“Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

1 Five churchy phrases we can do without. Right?
2 Adventure locations, or at least your not-so-typical hotel location!
3 Fifteen checks on what makes trouble for a church, outlined here. 
4 So where are all the (apostolic) leaders. Anthony Delaney enquires well on this.
5 Layers of leadership delegation in church ministry. A really helpful model. 

*And some of my wonderful adventuring family!
