* I'm not always a huge fan of Rick Warren, but he is right on target when he warns pastors to protect their marriages. Pastors deal with emotions and vulnerabilities all the time. They need to work hard to keep lines of communication open with their spouses.
* Speaking about Rick Warren, apparently Saddleback Church had a $900,000 shortfall in 2009. About 10% of their parishioners are out of work. Clearly the economy stinks right now, and giving is down everywhere. I don't know if the shortfall was a surprise, but I wonder if it could be handled different.
