Peter Scazzero has written two good posts entitled “Leadership and Differienation.” (Part one here, part two here and part three here.) This is a good example of a leader who wrestles with helpful reflective questions. (Scazzero is the author of Emotionally Healthy Christianity.)
“The 30 Best Places to be if You Love Books.” (Thanks to Rachel Held Evans.)

Howard Hendricks, longtime professor at Dallas Theological Seminary passed away last week. Hendricks taught at the seminary since 1952. See this moving conversation between himself, Churck Swindoll, and several others regarding his life and ministry.
