There are two blogs that stand out to me in how well they offer encouragement to so many people. The first is John Dobbs’ Out Here Hope Remains. Not only does he have a cool last name, he also knows how to help uplift people and carry out many of the “one another” passages through his blog on a regular basis. The only thing I can hold against John is his love for coffee…besides that he is an all around good guy. John is a minister in Louisiana and has been blogging for quite some time. He is well known for his recovery work following Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast. Some even call him the Blog King. That is a pretty nifty title but I think he would be more appreciative of the title of king of encouragement. If you don’t read his blog you really should! Here is the link.
The second is Terry Rush’s blog, Morning Rush. Terry has a way of talking about things in a way that makes you want to be as excited about whatever it is as much as he is. I still haven’t figured out how he does it, he just does. He writes to encourage ministers and non-ministers alike. I often find much of what he writes especially encouraging to elders and deacons. Terry also has a wonderful series on evangelism called 100% Natural Evangelism on DVD. We used it in our men’s class and it was excellent material. Terry is also known for his work directing the Spiritual Growth Workshop in Tulsa.
Another two blogs that would be wise to subscribe to if you want a well written, frequently updated read that you will find encouraging over and over again. I thank God for these two men.
