Listening in Prayer
by Dan Hamil
NAB Executive Director

In 1988, Bill Hybels penned a book whose title alone is worth the price. The book is Too Busy Not to Pray. As spiritual leaders, we find the busyness of our lives—the pace of decisions and deadlines—overwhelming at times. In these seasons of hectic pace, we tend to drop items off our schedules that we believe can be postponed or passed over without significant loss.

Praying Schripture

by Norm Poehlke
NAB Vice President of Ministry Outreach

As we continue to bring our leadership focus onto the theme of prayer this month, I thought it might be helpful for us to spend some time reflecting on our need to hear from God in prayer. This is not so much the activist prayer of agenda, but the submissive prayer of listening, of being still, of paying attention.

A Renewed Theological Vision
by Cam Roxburgh
NAB VP of Missional Initiatives

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I'm constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

—Come Thou Fount

Serving Up Our Best

by Norm Poehlke
NAB Vice President of Ministry Outreach

In July we had about thirty leaders from the NAB gathering together in Kananaskis, Alberta, for a series of strategic meetings. I had the privilege of facilitating one day of discussions on the topic of church planting. As much as I am encouraged by the work we accomplished together, I think I am even more encouraged by how the work was done.
