Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:10-13 KJV

Stay at Home, Pastors

Pastors, Please Stay Home

Congregational members have to come to realize that when the Pastor is gone traveling and attending retreats, seminars, workshops, presenting papers, writing books, conducting webinars and the like, there is also all the prep time that goes into it.  Pastors would have more time to not only visit the sick and infirm, but all the regular members too.  Its been over twenty years since I have had a home visit 'just because'.  Pastors wouldn't have to get their congregations to fork over thousands of dollars to do stewardship if he were home in the first place getting to know all of his flock.  They wouldn't have to turn Bible readings/sermonettes and Bible Class over to layman.  They could be home more with their families.

Want to be real, relational and relevant?  Then stay home, Pastors!
