The Cardinal Sin of Wasting Time
Pastors often complain that church members don’t understand the time pressures of a pastor's job. While that rings true, according to Mike Glenn, Senior Pastor of Brentwood Baptist Church in Nashville, it's also true that pastors don’t fully understand the lives of their members. He says "Pastor, if you love your people, don’t waste their time." He offers suggestions for how pastors can better understand those they shepherd and adjust church programs accordingly.
