“Get to Know your People”

The Gospel Coalition website always has some interesting things to say about ministry in the 21st century. Some of those guys I just love to read because of the wisdom they impart, and others there drive me right up the proverbial wall (It is not so important for you to know who is who). All that being said, there is an excellent article by Kevin DeYoung entitled, Advice for Theological Students and Young Pastors, which should be read by every pastor, not just the young ones. My favorite piece of advice warns against chasing one of the ecclesiological fads of our day: “Spend more time getting to know your people and less time trying to figure out the culture of your city.
