Before I post a link to the message I gave today, I have a few things I want to say:
- For those of you who worship among unprogrammed Friends, I apologize that I didn’t take the time in this message to address what really is an important subject: why Evangelical Friends have become ok with releasing pastors financially to do the work God has called them to do. I may write about that another time on the blog. Without having had those conversations, it feels weird to post this message that simply assumes it’s normal and ok to support pastors financially. I seriously debated NOT posting it all, but then that felt like I was just ashamed of it or not willing to have it be up for you to read. So I’m posting it, and inviting your comments/critiques/questions.
- No disrespect to Rick Warren intended. 😉
- Since you are my loyal blog readers, I’ll give you a $10 discount on the book I promote in the message. ; ^)
With that out of the way, here’s the message.
