Morning Roundup 1/15/14
Our church just signed up for Ministry Grid. We will actually move part of our membership class online and then use the other training modules there. Here's a story on the release.
This is not a trend. It's not even a countertrend. But, it is an interesting microtrend, and my mother/stepfather were among those who moved from evangelicalism to orthodoxy, eventually becoming an Eastern Orthodox priest. (This fact should keep some people busy sending emails around…) Anyway, it's worth a read.
Dr. Tim Clinton, president of American Association of Christian Counselors, met with me to discuss the important topic of mental illness and the church. Tim and I talked about depression, suicide, referring people to professionals, and what to do when you are "stuck." In this clip, Tim explains how to assess depression. Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 3:00 PM Eastern for The Exchange.
