What would happen if we slowed down and looked at the world and our lives with new eyes? Do we have such a utility mindset that we disregard the beauty God has provided for our enjoyment and refreshment? Timothy D. Willard schools us on being a beauty chaser; slowing down to hear God speak to us through beauty. If you need permission to "smell the roses" it's coming your way in this "wonder" filled conversation!
What is one essential question pastors should ask when making decisions that affect their church? Denison Forum's Mark Turman addresses that question in a recent blog and we're talking about it on Monday's show. Pastors have had to make critical decisions on how to do church these last few years, and the stresses of the recent pandemic have been unprecedented in our lifetime. Now as we've returned to church and pastors are faced with a new normal in their congregations, Mark will share some of the top priorities in making decisions that will have the greatest impact for God's glory and the good of people.
Timothy D. Willard has written for publications and organizations such as Catalyst, WinShape Foundation, The Prison Entrepreneurship Program, and Invisible Ink. He is also pursuing an MA in Christian Thought at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He lives with his wife and their daughter, Lyric.
