Dobson, economy, faith-based organizations … links roundup

I’m happy to be back home for a couple days during an intense season of travel.
Just about everyone has probably heard the news about James Dobson here … I am one of millions who were encouraged to be a better father and husband through Dobson’s ministry (although now, looking back, there is some of his advice I sincerely wish I hadn’t followed). Although I profoundly differ from him on many matters, I think he’s spot on when he says:

“One of the common errors of founder-presidents is to hold to the reins of leadership too long, thereby preventing the next generation from being prepared for executive authority,” Dobson said in a statement. “… Though letting go is difficult after three decades of intensive labor, it is the wise thing to do.”

Regarding the economic recovery, Chris Martenson talks about the key issues in moving forward. I continue to be impressed by the resonances between his diagnoses and mine in Everything Must Change.
Paul Rauschenbusch addresses an important question for faith-based organizations here.
