Friday's 5 To Live By

Each Friday our BCC staff links you to the top five biblical counseling and Christian living blog posts of the week—posts that provide robust, rich, and relevant insights for living.

5 Levels of Motivation to Change an Eating Disorder

Pastor Brad Hambrick, at his site, A Counselor for the Church, has been blogging on eating disorders, or, as he calls it, Gaining a Healthy Relationship with Food. In this post, Brad addresses 5 Levels of Motivation to Change an Eating Disorder.

Counseling and the Local Church

At his Counseling One Another site, Pastor Paul Tautges introduces readers to the Biblical Counseling Coalition’s latest book, Biblical Counseling and the Church. He writes:

“How can your church become a place to grow in grace? The newest collaborative book from the Biblical Counseling Coalition, Biblical Counseling and the Church, equips your congregation to be a family where every member is empowered to speak the truth in love so your entire church matures in Christ. Dozens of authors practically and relevantly describe the relationship between counseling and the local church. This comprehensive resource helps pastors, lay leaders, educators, and counselors develop a vision that goes beyond being a church with a biblical counseling ministry to becoming a church of biblical counseling—a church culture that is saturated by one-another ministry. I’m honored to have been part of this important project.”

You can read the rest of Paul’s thoughts at Counseling and the Local Church.

A Neglected Pastoral Priority

At his Practical Shepherding site, Pastor Brian Croft asks and answers the question, What Is the Most Common Ministry Priority Neglected by Pastors? What do you think it is? Find Brian’s answer here.

Staggering Under the Burdens

Julie Ganschow, blogging about loss, grief, and suffering, writes, “When your life seems to be completely out of control, please remember that it is never out of His control.” You can read the rest of her meditations on Scripture and suffering in Staggering Under the Burdens.
