While I absolutely cannot stand country music, the message in this video speaks to why I am passionate about breaking the stereotype of pastors. This video assumes pastors functioning in a traditional, Western, modern way. One of my former pastors used to preach “family first” and, using a play on the words of Jesus, said: “What good will it be if we gain the whole world but lose our families?” I battle against these temptations regularly, and I am far from perfect, but by God’s grace I hope that I am moving toward and modeling a different, more healthy kind of pastorship. Selah.
