Why these five?

I have hundreds of feeds captive in my Google reader – literally. I selected these as the top five that consistently challenge me to trust Christ and love His church. Why only five? Pastor’s must fiercely guard their time. Every day there are thousand of very good blog articles published that might be helpful to pastors. But if we only read the good stuff, who would have time for the Puritans?

    So Challies just gets an honorable mention? And the Pyros don’t even make the list! WOW! Tough to make this list!

    I would have to say TomInTheBox has been a tremendous help to me over the last month or so. A brother needs a good laugh if you know what I’m sayin!

    Honestly, Colin Adams at Unashamed Workman has been helpful for me if for nothing more than the toolbox he offers every week. It’s good stuff.

    I’m shocked that Brian McLaren or Rob Bell’s blog didn’t make the list. 🙂 How can you not find that helpful?

    Good list Tony…now my question is: “hundreds of feeds” does one go about getting your OPML file?

  2. Tony Kummer says:

    I can email you my OPML if you like – it is a little messy but you can import it to google reader.

    Update: Team Pyro – honorable mention. It seems like their best ideas make it out via Phil on the Shepherd’s fellowship blog.

  3. Brother Hank says:

    Pure Church definitely tops my list. Along with Pastor Way’s blog.

    Want to start your private office arms race right now?

    I just got my own USB rocket launcher 🙂 Awsome thing.

    Plug into your computer and you got a remote controlled office missile launcher with 360 degrees horizontal and 45 degree vertival rotation with a range of more than 6 meters – which gives you a coverage of 113 square meters round your workplace.
    You can get the gadget here:
