A pastor can’t seize sabbatical. He can only enter it with confidence in a team of leaders who will support and enable his extended absence.
Part 2 of the review of Andy Stanley’s book “Deep & Wide..” We must learn to think deeply again. We’ve become like the “Modern Family” sitcom in our ecclesiology – adrift and in reaction mode to what’s happening around us. We have no strategy and act like we have no mission. We’re simply in our church living rooms spouting off one-liners and have become the slapstick of society. Our youth and college students struggle to apply (or even know) scriptural principles to living and decisions.
For those of us raised or influenced by talking vegetables, this book about the creator and creation of Veggie Tales is both cautionary and inspiring.
