The tone of this episode is a bit darker than ordinary, and the length a tad longer.

A line from the Bee Gees’ song “Words” keeps bouncing around in my head. “This world has lost its glory, let’s start a brand new story.” The reputation of pastors has lost its glory, and perhaps the start of a new story begins with a proper anger.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Notes and resources relevant to this episode:

The Marcus Mumford interview is here.

Ezekiel takes on shepherds in Ezekiel 34. It’s good for us to read and re-read this now and then.

The internet makes it easy for us to fall into the trap of the false apostles whose motive Paul exposes is that of wanting others to make much of them. “They make much of you, but for no good purpose. They want to shut you out, that you may make much of them.” (Galatians 4:17)

The quote from Jesus’ parable is paraphrased from Luke 18:11.

Paul’s reference is found in 2 Corinthians 12:14.
