five on Friday

“All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.”  J.R.R. Tolkien

1 And if you don’t burn for the church, don’t lead a church. That’s my take on a sparky write, earlier this week. 
2 Milton Jones on faith, comedy & atheism. His ever brilliant self.
3 Moving to missional communities. Helpful insight with scaleable mission, passion and wisdom. A useful read.
4 Growth, mission & local transformation. Yes please…… Lecture inspiration from +Stephen.
5 Matt Valler’s engagement with scripture and the evangelical landscape. 

And haven’t John Lewis kept up their seasonal advert standards!?
