One thing I’ve really enjoyed at past Resolved conferences is the Q&A’s. For those of you who don’t know what Resolved is, click on the link. NOW. And maybe come join us this June? Actually, I am still a maybe but I sure hope that it works out.
If you read, listen to, or have benefitted in some way from the ministries of some of the greatest reformed preachers of our day, then listening to these men and their families share a little bit of their personal lives is so encouraging. For me, hearing people like John MacArthur talk about his struggles and difficulties in the ministry, for some reason serves as a great encouragement. I think it’s easy to assume that people who have very public ministries, and are such strong examples to other believers, don’t go through regular pains and suffer through difficulty. This makes them all the more personable and brings a sense of fellowship and commonality that might be missed otherwise.
I watched this clip of the Q&A at this year’s Shepherd’s Conference and Phil Johnson did a wonderful job of asking some very relevant and insightful questions. Take a look!
And finally, I stumbled upon this great interview with Mary & Katie Mohler, Al Mohler’s wife and daughter. This is a great listen for women more specifically. Especially if you happen to be married to someone in the ministry, or are just interested in learning more about this family, this Q&A was quite enjoyable.
