This is my 100th post since I started last summer, and so I thought it was time to get some feedback. So, I have two simple questions:
- Why do you visit ministrynutsandbolts.com?
- What’s the most important thing that the blog could help you with?
Comments below – and thanks in advance!

I visit you site because I know you. Second I visit you site because you push me to do ministry better. You passion for a better church doing better ministry matters. I like you see beyond just weekly Sunday by Sunday, you ask for more than that, to prepare for a better ministry for a longer term delivery and thinking. Thanks
1. It give me something short and manageable to read to help and challenge me in ministry. Sometimes it reminds me of what I know, sometimes it pushes me somewhere knew.
2. I think the insights that I can’t or am not likely to read in books/elsewhere on ministry.
I read because I know you and you remind me to read by posting on Facebook. I trust what you say.
I like the style in which you write. It’s helpful and practical stuff which often starts a conversation with my (Minister) husband or helps us to dig deeper into how we’re seeking to serve in our parish. I don’t read a lot of blogs because I’m not an academic and the ones I seem to stumble across lose me in the second paragraph. Yours is short, pithy, practical and yet still teaches me from scripture.
I look forward to the next 100.
I’m a 25 year old guy and I like relaxing by reading blogs.
I read yours as:
I value hearing older, more mature Christians’ thoughts on anything.
You have a gift for writing clearly, which makes your articles enjoyable to read.
I hope that from time to time (I think this is right) you may comment on significant news items with a more godly perspective than I have!
I hope that the blog may remind me of Jesus from time to time (I enjoyed your post on why God loves pastors).
I hope that anything on preaching or Bible teaching will help me to teach others better (I help lead a Bible study one a week).
Posts on being a good husband would particularly help me, but I fully appreciate that I’m not the typical target audience (I’m not a full-time pastor).
I try to do all of these, except for the current news stories where the market is already pretty crowded
As above -enjoy the clearly presented, thought provoking, digestable nature of the blog. Keep challenging us
