About 2 years ago I decided to make it difficult to comment on my blog. You had to sign in, get an account with Typekey, and then wait for the post to be approved. What I've found is that I've lost some of the purpose I started this blog for, which is to interact with other church leaders so we can learn from each other. So I decided today to reopen the comments. Comments will still be moderated, but people can now post comments freely without getting CIA-type clearance to so. So play nice… and enjoy!
The Twitter Experiment
I don’t know if I’m going to like this, but I’m testing out Twitter. If you want to follow what I’m doing, here’s the link…
There were some great posts this week. Here’s a few just in case you missed them: – My friend Bill had a great series of posts about preaching here, here, and here – My friend Nelson had a great post on how to read faster – Ben’s post about surveys was good. (I haven’t totally discounted surveys, but it’s a good reminder to not lead your organization based solely on surveys) – I really like Tim’s job description of a campus Pastor here – Craig’s post on preaching was great! Happy reading!
New Blogger to put on your radar!
I never thought I’d live to see it, but my friend Nelson Searcy is blogging! Great content so far (especially his latest post 🙂 As you may know, Nelson has been very instrumental in my life over the last 2 years or so. His resources and coaching have stretched me and challenged me to think differently about church and ministry. So add him to your bloglines or google reader or however you read blogs. This is quickly going to become a top blog in the church world.
Thanks to those of you that let me know my blog’s RSS feed was getting freaky a few days ago. Apparently, those of you who subscribe where getting my posts, plus celebrity UK gossip. While British celebrity gossip has always been a passion of mine (insert sarcasm) this was a weird typepad error that has been fixed. But while we’re on the subject of RSS feeds, why don’t you do yourself the favor of subscribing instead of surfing on to the site? I follow about 15 blogs and because I subscribe to them through an RSS reader, it takes me … Read More
Top 7 of 2007
Here’s are what I think was the best of Bobfranquiz.com in 2007… 7. This series of posts (part 1, part 2, part 3) I liked a lot. It’s what I believe about teaching. 6. This one still makes me laugh.

This was amazing! I love being a Boston fan these days! 1. This was the greatest moment of … Read More
In Case You Missed it…
Here are my favorite posts of the week… – Gary hit it hard on his advice to church planters. Dang! – Todd had this post about the types of friends a Pastor needs. So true! – Scott’s post about people coming and going from church was amazing!
In Case You missed It…
Here’s some good posts that caught my attention this week… – Bill is reporting that Jack T. Chick is back with a new tract. Awesome! – Ben’s post here had me thinking about what we do and what we’re up against every week. (P.S. One of the best beaches in the world is 15 minutes away) – Jay’s post has “sermon material” written all over it! It’s amazing and disgusting all at the same time! – Perry’s post on stuff Church planters need to know is awesome! In my experience, church planters talk too much and listen too little. I … Read More
