If there is anything that pastors can agree on, it’s that we are busy. We complain about it like we complain about the weather. Being busy is a badge many wear with honor. Busy-ness, we may think, is somewhere next to godliness.

That’s an assumption that in this episode of Greatheart’s Table I’d like to challenge as we think about what it means to be a busy pastor.

If anyone would like to help with the costs of producing these episodes, I’d appreciate it. Click on the “tip jar.” There’s no pressure!

If you find value in what we are doing here, it would be great if you could review us, but more than that, stop right now and tell some friends about us. I’d appreciate it!
