  • Remember the Sabbath

    Leadership Essentials, Personal Growth

    Sometimes, as busy pastors and leaders we think, "I've got so much to do I just can't take a Sabbath." NO, that's very wrong thinking. You'll kill yourself. For years I've had a plan for taking my Sabbath. Sometimes I found that I wasn't able to take a whole day off all at once, in one nice neat package, so then I'd take snip-its of Sabbaths. I'd take an afternoon here and a morning somewhere else, but basically one day out of seven I'd desist—it might be an afternoon here and a morning there, but it would total one day a week. Then I'd also take off every seventh weekend. I'd be out of the pulpit.

    The following is a guest post from Pastor Wayne's good friend, Larry Osborne. I’m often asked by other pastors and leaders about the best way to go about making major organizational and ministry changes. My answer often surprises them. I usually tell them to, “Slow down.” It’s not what they expect from someone with a reputation as an innovator. Now let me be clear. I don’t tell them to stop. No way. But I often tell them to slow down. And here’s why.
