Ok, Thursday, I asked my church planting coach Phil Strout about maintaining a personal devotional life while pastoring and working another job fulltime too. I figured it was a good time to ask since there’s no current crisis. Sort of what Covey would consider a Q2 question.
Then yesterday, I heard an archived podcast byÂ Nelson Searcy in which he said, “If you’re not taking a Sabbath, you’re living in sin and God can’t bless your calendar.” So I emailed him to see if he has tips for bi-vocational types. (His assistant immediately emailed back saying he was on vacation and she’d be sure he got the email when he’s back. Uber-cool!)
Think God’s trying to tell me something?
Still don’t feel like I’m in crisis but I certainly don’t want to get there!
