Came across a great post yesterday called “10 Reasons to Under-Program Your Church.” I’m considering writing a follow-up called “You might be in an over-programmed church if..” (Foxworthy-esque). This is a topic I’ve thought about often, have lots of opinions on, and am waiting for the right time to share them some day.
Anyways, check out the original post by pastor and author Jared Wilson. One of my favorite points in it is:
“8. Over-programming reduces margin in the lives of church members. It’s a fast track to burnout for both volunteers and attendees, and it implicitly stifles sabbath.”
Some good things to chew on…
