five on Friday

“Holiness does not consist in doing extraordinary things. It consists in accepting, with a smile, what Jesus sends us. It consists in accepting and following the will of God.” the late Mother Teresa.

1 Eight reasons why churches are below two-hundred in number. Paul Benger offers much here. 
2 Malcolm Gladwell, along with Rick Warren, brilliantly speaking here on David & Goliath if you’re not in the mood for his great new book.
3 Brilliant inspiration and embodiment of why ‘side-project’ really matter! Worth a read. 
4 Seven habits of highly emotionally intelligent people. Worth a read. 
5 Ten things pastors hate to admit to in public! Yes its all the stuff I’ve wrestled with in me, and with others.
