05 Nov Preparation Time
Every so often, I do a complete life re-evaluation. I look at my priorities, my schedule, and my energy-drainers, and try to realign to gain the greatest effectiveness and healthy. Sometimes I am involved in coaching another pastor on their life planning or the arrangement of their weekly schedule.
I am curious. How much time do you think is the appropriate amount of time for a pastor to spend on sermon preparation in a week? How much is too much (in that maybe there is not enough time spent on leadership-oriented activities)? How much is probably too little (simply because there will not be enough depth)?
