five on Friday

Psalm 34 v 1-4 “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul will make its boast in the LORD; the humble will hear it and rejoice. O magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together. I sought the Lord, and He answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.”

1 Jesus invented the church; let’s allow him to lead it while we cultivate a flourishing well-watered garden first and a well-oiled machine second. Let the garden flourish. 
2 A beautiful video piece that is inspiring around creativity & Blaine Hogan’s brilliant free resource.
3 John Truscott’s helpful posts on managing staff. Seven angles on this.
Paul Tripp inspiring and faithful as ever. “Meditate on His beauty. Focus on His glory. Bask in His grace. Fall in love again with your Saviour.”
5 We lack patience for the discipleship process. Some of why we ‘fail’ at discipleship.
