    I saw the documentary Joshua Harris did on Prime the other night. I thought it was up front and quite well done.

    I recall when his book came out in 1999 and the rage it was in Evangelical circles. I personally didn’t care for it.

    I don’t know the “circumstances” of their separation but it makes me sad.

    I realize as he came to realize that his book did tons of damage to many people.

    So very sad…

    “ How can so many pastors be godly and dysfunctional at the same time?”

    Great question. I’ve never stopped wondering that.

    What’s the other option?
    Perfect and then they get criticized for their sinless perfection and that they “can’t relate?”

    Nearly perfect and their small shortcomings get criticized?

    Any level of Christian maturity and then the pastor isn’t hip enough or is trying too hard?
    Too loud or too soft?
    Compassionate or a humanist who has departed the faith?

    For some, a pastor is literally damned if he do, damned if he don’t.

    From the article:
    Step 1: Take the Body More Seriously
    Step 2: Take the Brain More Seriously
    Step 3: Take Interpersonal Communion More Seriously

    Good stuff. Thanks. Pastoral burnout is SO HIGH!!!

    From Josh Harris’ Instagram:

    “….The information that was left out of our announcement is that I have undergone a massive shift in regard to my faith in Jesus. The popular phrase for this is “deconstruction,” the biblical phrase is “falling away.” By all the measurements that I have for defining a Christian, I am not a Christian. Many people tell me that there is a different way to practice faith and I want to remain open to this, but I’m not there now.⁣⁣”
