I have a new resource of challenge and encouragement for pastors to share with you — C.J. Mahaney, Jeff Purswell, and Joshua Harris have begun a new podcast. Go check out the Leadership Interview Series and subscribe to the RSS feed to get updates. The first podcast is on the topic of The Pastor and His Reading – find the show notes here and get the mp3 here.
Update: Here’s the piece on the T4G blog that refers to John Stott’s time allotments for reading and study apart from study for sermon preparation.
I just read a piece on C.J. Mahaney’s blog, which quotes C.J., Jeff Purswell, and Mike Bullmore and touches on so many areas that challenge and encourage me — a pastor’s abilities, calling, preaching effectiveness, and use of time. I think many pastor’s deal with challenges in these areas, so I share it with all who will hear me and go read this post.
For those reading who are not pastors you can read and learn how to encourage and pray for your pastor as he schedules his time and prepares to preach God’s Word, a very precious privilege, week in and week out.
When I finish my breakfast it’s back to my own studies, because Sunday ‘s a comin’.
