Recently I’ve read through The Pastor, Peterson’s memoir. Towards the end of this self-reflective work, Peterson gives a remarkable description of church in America. I’m not championing everything Peterson wrote, said, preached, or stood for. However, his writing has struck a chord with me – a regular pastor.

Any student of the Bible knows the treasure of doctrine that is found on the pages of Paul’s letter to the church in Rome.

Landon talks to “Pastor Crossfit,” Josh Green, about regular pastors and extended time away, aka, sabbaticals.
