Posted in: What is "Sonship"?
For what it's worth, "Sonship" teaching has been somewhat controversial within Presbyterian circles, not because of its name but because of its theology. Number 19 in this paper by John Frame gives some of the background: http://www.frame-poythress.org/frame_articles/2003Machen.htm An account of a conference on "Sonship and Sanctification," which included presntations "for" and "against" is: http://www.banneroftruth.org/pages/news/2001/06/greenville_conference.php
Posted in: Three Bits of Advice for New Pastors
It sounds like you got some good advice. In helping people understand the importance of prayer in the ministry, I have referred them to Acts 6:4, where the apostles say they will give their attention "to prayer and the ministry of the word." Prayer is now written in as one of the headings in my position description. And because it is in my position description, that can also trigger discussions about how I am doing in that area.
