Ed Young… son of a mega-church pastor and now a mega-church pastor in his own right.
Here, we get an earful from him on the life of a pastor and the things he feels contributes to pastoral burnout.
Part confession… part self-analysis… part “patting himself on the back” and part “taking himself a little too seriously”… this video blog gives us a look at what Ed Young thinks about his life as a pastor and how he views his role within the church.
On one hand, I admire his honesty… I really do. But on the other I am saddened that he feels he is the “franchise-player” of his church, and that the whole thing rises or falls because of him. No doubt, as you watch this, your pastor most likely has the same exact feelings.
Here’s my question: Can we save them from themselves?
