The Productive Pastor

I am super excited to share my conversation with Adam Weber today. Adam is the lead pastor of Embrace Church. And he just wrote his first book! It is a fantastic, accessible book on prayer. I love it.

I'm hustling along on the premium content for my sermon worksheet. If you want to jump on the early bird mailing list, you can do so right here. Plus I give you the last beta version of the sheet.

My friend Danielle left a great review of the podcast on iTunes. Thanks, Danielle.

Talking with God (with Adam Weber)

On the journey with prayer.

  • prayer as a last resort.
  • 5 years in when I started.
  • In the season of "back-patting."
  • The relationship of external prayer and deep internal desire.
  • Instead of "I need your help" we run head first into fixing it ourselves.

Prayer has to change at the heart level-not the mind level.

  • I want to make a different but apart from you I can do nothing.
  • Don't wait until the bottom falls out.
  • Wild stuff
  • Intentional prayer life through the week.
  • The power of walks.

What does Sabbath look like?

  • Friday-Saturday
  • Physical space of sabbath. (walks and the front porch)
  • Art of the sermon interview
  • He preaches 28 times a year
  • what breathes life into you and what takes life from you.

Study Retreat Recap (and more).

In episode 73, I talked about my upcoming study retreat. I was super excited to take this retreat. I learned several things on my retreat. 

  1. Go to a place that inspires you. It was really easy to study at the Lanier Theological Library. Almost perfect. 
  2. Being by yourself for that length of time is really odd. I was surprised how tough it was. 
  3. Schedule, Schedule, Schedule. 

Sermons that have reach

Over a year ago I started working on a new version of my sermon worksheet. It has taken me ages to update this resource because I am making it 100x better. I am shooting for it to be out in April. 

Podcasting Sermons

I have been getting more and more emails from people wanting to start podcasting their sermons. I TOTALLY believe this is a great idea for any church. I've started writing material to help anyone start podcasting, including buying equipment and what services they need to use.
