    Jesus’ Way of Dealing with Anger

    Jesus’ Way of Dealing with Anger

    What do we learn from Jesus about anger in the Bible? Jesus’ way of dealing with anger is quite different than what we think today. If we learn to deal with anger in the way that Jesus taught and modeled we’ll find that we’re living more and more in God’s peace. The...

    God Cares for Your Emotions (Psalm 139)

    Many Christians are stunted in their spiritual growth because they don’t understand or express their deep emotions and desires. As pastors, ministry leaders, caregivers, or parents we may get so busy or so focused on other people that we become disconnected from our...

    How Do You Know?

    In his book The Case for Grace, pastor and author Lee Strobel describes a dream he had as a child after having a significant argument with his father. Strobel does what most of us would do at that age: resolve to work harder, perform better, and get into his father’s...

    As a solo pastor of a busy parish church (and a PhD candidate) in Scotland, my time for sermon prep is often limited to a few precious hours a week, sometimes even less. Even though we live in an age of voluminous online resources, very few of them offer anything more than a mile-wide and inch-deep approach to the tasks of preaching and Christian discipleship.

    Anyone who utilizes this resource will find a wealth of spiritual treasures for the taking, and therefore I warmly commend The Pastor’s Workshop to everyone who has an interest in preaching God’s Word in a faithful and effective manner.

    I have found The Pastor’s Workshop to be an incredible resource for getting my creative juices flowing, especially in those moments (which we all have) when we seem stuck and inspiration is non-existent.  Thanks Stu for all your work on this remarkable site!

    I love preaching and putting together worship services, but we all have those moments when we simply do not have the mental energy or time to do it on our own. In those moments I now turn to thepastorsworkshop.com. What a Godsend.

    There are dozens of pithy, theologically helpful sermon illustrations as well as those great quotes you half remember but can’t quite put your finger on when you need them. This is not just sermon filler; it’s sermon power.

    Even for a stodgy Anglican with a Book of Common Prayer that serves-up-the-script for our worship services, I still benefit greatly from thepastorsworkshop.com.  This site presents intriguing and non-cliched quotes and stories that deepen the homiletical craft, and all those non-Anglicans out there can find biblically and theologically grounded liturgical helps that will deepen worship.
