Two Convicting Sites I Bumped Into Today

First, two convicting quotes on prayer.

 Second, Jayson Byassee shares some thoughts that he believes pastors in the today’s “wired” culture should be teaching their congregations. He says (don’t be put off by the gender used),

In response to our frenetic world, in which we can speak instantly to anyone around the world but have very little to say, I would argue pastors should be inaccessible more often than not. Part of our problem is that we get agitated if the email bell doesn’t go off every 30 seconds. Over against this, the pastor needs to teach us, to embody patience, or even silence. If my pastor, for example, is always instantly emailing me back, when is she praying for me? When is she quietly sitting in God’s presence, waiting for a word for us for Sunday? When is she nourishing her own soul in a way unrelated to her service to us, but just because God is good?
