This episode is one of what I call a ‘reset.’ I regularly re-post older episodes like this one which was originally released in July of 2021. I think it is still relevant.

One of the things I want to do with Greatheart’s Table is to encourage pastors, as one friend put it, “to be comfortable in their own skin.” That’s not easy when American Christian culture is telling us that there is a one-sized fits all model for the “successful” pastor.

God has made you you and has given you to his church. Now go be you.

Notes and resources relevant to this episode:

C. S. Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair, (United States: HarperCollins Publishers, 1981), p. 69.

I have an ambivalent relationship with Whitefield in particular and the Great Awakening in general which may explain my rather Puddleglummish approach here. You can read about that here.

The Autobiography of Benjamin Franklin
