Perhaps this is a bit selfish of me, but I am resurrecting posts to this blog over the next few weeks that were from another blog. I just realized that I was potentially losing a number of blog posts from a now sadly defunct co-authored blog (bluechippastor.org) that I thought should perhaps be shared and preserved. That blog was a tremendous contribution (in my estimation) for pastors by pastors and I am deeply grateful to Dan Thompson (and the numerous others who contributed) for sharing this blog for several years. Thus I will be posting my old posts from that site in order to not lose them and perhaps offer aid to those who might further benefit from them. These ran from May 2012-July 2014 and are dated according to their original publication.
