Last year around this time, I was able to make available to you a short book on the topic of work that I had written earlier that year. This year, I have the privilege of doing that again.

Some of us in leadership (but not all of us) are concerned about the effect of “internet church.” Some of us, myself included, believe that it is actually not good for people to watch something on a screen and believe that they have “gone to church online.”

I was recently reminded of this Bible verse: "The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him." ~ Proverbs 18:17. What an important principle to remember. The less bible-y way to say this would be the phrase: “There are two sides to every story.”
