Episode 06—Social Media and Pastoral Burnout

Dale and I are working on tweaking the podcast to have more specific segments and a more specific posting date. Current plan is to record Tuesday night and post sometime Wednesday (Dale is the editor/poster guy). Our segments in this episode are “In the News”—where we talk about some recent happening that may or may not be serious—and “Pastor’s Corner”—where we talk about something recent ministry happening that may or may not be serious.

In this episode:

  • We marvel at Twitter’s new rules on character counts in Tweets (sorry if you don’t know what that means).
  • We talk about Christians using/not using social media for ministry impact.
  • We address pastoral burnout and what I (Hans) believe pastors can learn from non-ministry workers about doing your job.
  • Dale talks about a time he threw a box into a TV.

Also, for those of you who get bored with podcasts (or don’t listen), I promise that I will still write real blog posts. We’re just trying to get in a recording/posting rhythm.

I'd love to hear your thoughts . . .
