Unburdened: It’s Not What You Might Think

Posted by | For Pastors, Personal Life, Resources for Pastors | No Comments

By Michael Todd Wilson “Come . . . all who are . . . burdened. . . . my burden is light.” This is a very different kind of unburdening than we’d initially think and, on brief reflection, different than we might even want. The idea of being unburdened conjures up images of running a full-tilt Olympic sprint without restraints, completely unencumbered. We certainly have this in store for us in heaven, but this isn’t going to be our experience…

Country Club Church

Posted by | For Pastors, Resources for Pastors | No Comments

Thom Rainer in his small but powerful read I Am a Church Member, compares the difference between Country Club Membership and Church Membership. God clearly designed the church to act as a body, with each member actively serving for the mutual benefit of others, exercising their God-given spiritual gifts for the health and well-being of the body with the end result a healthy church involved in building God’s kingdom.

I Don’t Have Time

Posted by | For Pastors, Latest Blog, Personal Life, Resources for Pastors | No Comments

Wouldn’t it be logical that with all our modern technology that saves us so much time, we would have an abundance of leftover time? Time to smell the proverbial roses, time to _____________, you fill in the blank. But instead of having time left over, we fall victim to the “time troll.” Whose song says; “Rush, rush, hurry, hurry because if you don’t what will people say? Everything is depending on you so rush, rush, hurry, hurry.” The song is…
