This is the first installment of a new series here at Pastoralized: Shepherd Links.
Throughout the week, I will collect links that pertain primarily to the pastoral roles of prophet, priest, and king, and then publish them on Saturday. These are called Shepherd Links because true shepherding takes place where the roles of the prophet, priest, and king overlap.
I hope you are strengthened in your pastoral ministry through these articles. I’m sure you will have seen some of them if you are on the web much, but hopefully I’ll be able to point you to some things you missed.
To start off, I suggest you hit up Jay Thomas’ articles on the roles and make up of the prophet, the priest, and the king in pastoral ministry. He offers very insightful thoughts on what makes pastors tick, depending on which role they are particularly gifted in.
