Today I’m starting a new series here called What You Might Have Missed From the Interwebs. I like to read, and I follow quite a few different people on Twitter, which means I’m exposed to a decent amount of stuff per week. I don’t have the time to create a blog post for each one, not to mention that I wouldn’t want to flood your in boxes, so I’ve decided that once a week I’ll try to do one blog post that includes several links with a really brief description.
So here is edition #1:
While the majority of people still come to the Scriptures to connect with God, their number is shrinking, from 64% in 2011 to 56% in 2014. Today, people are increasingly likely to come to the Bible for more pragmatic needs: nearly one-third (up from 26% in 2011) say they read the Bible for comfort or to help them address life’s questions.
2. Preach Better Sermons: Free Online Webinar from Preaching Rocket. I’m going to register for this event, by the way.
3. Harvard Business Review | Team Chemistry Is the New Holy Grail of Performance Analytics. What’s the perfect way to build team chemistry? They haven’t quite figured it out yet, but it’s a burgeoning field. Perhaps one day church teams will implement some of these methods.
And that’s it for this first edition.
