New Challenges for Scheduling Vacations
Just a few years ago, clergy could go on vacation if they made sure someone would conduct worship in their absence , visit the sick, and handle a possible funeral. Times have changed.
I spoke at the press conference yesterday at the request of a Baptist denominational executive who needs to get away for a vacation and July is by far the best month. The Chris Young case involves several Baptist families and he asked me because he thought I could handle the situation for Baptists and others.
I am aware how much attention church leaders are now having to spend on events and needs outside their congregations and denominations. The world follows a different drummer.
