Wednesday Roundup: Is “Work-Life Balance” a god for Ministers?; Politics – In What Way Is It Important to You?; Marriage – *Same Question* (11/8/17)

  • “Work-life balance” is right, good, and desirable, but when does it become a god – the thing I owe ultimate allegiance to?  My observation: An overemphasis on “work-life balance” in ministry, can get in the way of doing ministry.  Carey Nieuwhof writes eloquently about this, here.


  • Speaking of gods, consider this powerful op-ed column by David Brooks: “These days, partisanship is often totalistic. People often use partisan identity to fill the void left when their other attachments wither away — religious, ethnic, communal and familial.”
