I agree with Rick Warren on altar calls. See this post by Dr. James Galyon to find out why.
Matt Svoboda discusses the diversity within the SBC. He suggests adopting Dr. Mohler's three-tier system.

Really good suggestions here.
Wow! You absolutely must read this: Contextualization Gone Hog Wild. It is both painfully and humorously ironic.
Bill Mounce teaches us on the grammar of Ephesians 4:11 and winds up discussing the responsibilities of a pastor. For those of you that think your pastor should do everything read this article.
The Wall Street Journal has an article on The Mystery Worshipper. (I was in a church once that almost hired a guy like this). Jared Wilson has a great commentary on the article as well. Even if you do not read the WSJ article read Jared's.
Big game tonight for the Browns. My prediction New York Giants 106 to Cleveland 3. I know it's a long shot...but I really think Phil Dawson might be able to kick a field goal. Ok, my real prediction.
