a decision a promise You Too_(1)

I’ve been contemplating the recent news of Pastor Jarrid Wilson’s suicide. I believe the evangelical/Christian world was blessed by his openness and candor about mental health. A topic we could do a LOT better of addressing head on as the church.

I also wanted to examine “my part” as a member of the body served by Pastors and staff members.

Here is the decision I made today, perhaps it will inspire you too. I think it is a good place to start…


I have decided that unless it is an absolute emergency, I will not text/email/call our Pastors and Staff after office hours. Even if it’s just a quick question, even if it means I have to delay getting my ministry projects done until the next day.


I promise that I will honor their “off hours” when they are home with their families. I promise to respect their family time, and avoid interrupting that sacred time they are together. I promise to uphold their time of rest away from the church.
