A Plea to Exhausted Pastors and Their People

Pastors, Preach the Gospel…to Yourself
Can I confess something? I used to hate going to pastor’s conferences.To be clear, this was never the fault of the conference.

It wasn’t an issue with the content, who was speaking, or the accommodations available.
