  1. Hey Don! Great to see you up and running! Love the first blog (at least the first one I’ve seen). Keep up the good work – keep thinking. Glad to be on the same team with you, my friend!

  2. Don,

    Thanks for the great comments on reading with the “Read” and “How To Learn From Reading” posts. Given this, has there been any talk or can there be, about adding a “Staff Recommendations” or “Pastor’s Library” link which would like recommended books, etc. to the weekly SCC Bulletin?

    I’ve often wanted to ask you, Pastor Chuck, Elders, etc. “What are you reading now and why?” and thought this might be a way to corporately satisfy that need.

    Thanks again for all of your hard work. We should definitely do lunch soon.


    • John, Thanks for responding. I’ve never thought of the idea of having our pastors share the titles of books they’ve been reading. Let me think on that. The best book I’ve read recently is How We Got To Now by Steven Johnson. Also, Boys in the Boat is a good read.
      Take care.

  3. Hey Don,
    I enjoyed your comments–thanks for adding me to your list of subscribers! Even though I don’t run a business anymore, I try to make sure my mind doesn’t shift into neutral.

  4. I have one of the workbooks from your study “The 11th Commandment”. Is there a CD available for this study. I would like to do this study with my small group and can find the workbooks and book but haven’t been able to find a CD.

    Thank you

    • Carole, it’s good to hear from you. Two years ago I update the 11th Commandment material and published it as a book titled Love One Another. Information and books are available at There is no CD for the study but there is a facilitator’s guide. Kind regards, Don

  5. Pastor McMinn,
    The Lord put you on my heart this morning so I looked you up online. (Isn’t technology amazing?😀)

    I wanted to take this moment to honor you. In 1987, at Allandale Baptist Church (Austin, Tx), we, DeeAnn and I, were blessed to have you marry us in the eyes of the Lord. Just wanted to thank you again a let you know Jesus is still the center of our home and the glue that holds us together. Next year we’ll celebrate our 30th anniversary of being husband and wife.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart for marrying us!

    I speak continued blessings over you and Mary and know both of you will continue to be a blessing to others.

    Love in Christ,
    Joseph & DeeAnn Withrow

    • Joseph, you are so kind to take the time to get in touch. I am so glad to hear that you and DeeAnn have been together 30 years. Congratulations. Those were great years that we had together; I have such fond memories. Take care, Don

  6. Hi, Dr. Don! I just ran across a copy of the “Practice of Praise” and remembered what a powerful tool that was in my life. It’s been over 20 years now, but I wore out multiple copies; you were kind enough to send me the study guide, too. Anyway, glad to see you still running the race, and I’m challenged and inspired by your work here on the blog!
    Blessings, Phil

    • Phil, thank you for sharing kind and encouraging words. I really appreciate you taking the time to write. My nine years at Stonebriar Community church have been the best years of my life; I am so grateful. Take care.

  7. Looking for studies on discipleship hoping to use the 11th commandment. Have not been able to locate any books. Any idea on how to find them.

  8. I really enjoy your weekly posts. Thank you so much for sharing all these great ideas. I would like a copy of the e-book, but I don’t want to re-subscribe. Can you help?
