Minister’s Kid’s Parents, Nick
a discussion of “Pastor’s Kid” by Barnabas Piper and how we balance family and ministry and the things that go along with it

“Facebook” or “Pastor Superdad”
“Facebook” – http://www.ozy.com/acumen/is-social-media-killing-your-marriage/32192.article?utm_source=A1&utm_medium=pp&utm_campaign=pp
“Pastor Superdad” – Barnabas Piper interview Trevin: I hear people talking today about the need for a pastor to “pastor his family” first. You say this is bad advice. Why?
Barnabas: It’s bad advice because of what the term “pastor” has come to mean. I know people mean well by using it, but “pastor” is a job title loaded with a thousand expectations.
Pastors are, in many cases, expected to be supermen – morally superior, intellectually sound, theologians, counselors, preachers, teachers, businessmen, accountants, strategists, leaders, etc. If they bring those same sorts of expectations home nobody will benefit. Either they will think too much of themselves or feel like a failure.
Pastors’ kids don’t want superman. They want a present, loving father.

“Name Game” or “Falling Away”
“Name Game” – Is it okay to call yourself a Christian? http://www.relevantmagazine.com/current/op-ed/its-ok-call-yourself-christian#l2EmVytUeWUqsP8Q.01
In Rolling Stone’s upcoming cover story, Mumford demurred when asked if he considered himself a Christian, as a teaser on the magazine’s website revealed. “I don’t really like that word. It comes with so much baggage,” he said, in terms that many fans will relate to. “So, no, I wouldn’t call myself a Christian.”
Mumford, the son of the U.K. founders of the evangelical Vineyard movement
As Mumford went on to explain about such people who call themselves “Christian,” “I think the word just conjures up all these religious images that I don’t really like. I have my personal views about the person of Jesus and who He was. Like, you ask a Muslim and they’ll say, ‘Jesus was awesome’—they’re not Christians, but they still love Jesus.”
“Falling Away” – The number one predictive factor as to whether or not a young Christian will retain his or her faith is whether that person has a meaningful relationship with an older Christian http://aspengroup.com/blog/millennials-need-a-bigger-god-not-a-hipper-pastor

Episode 3 “Happy Father’s Day”
Listener Callout

From Matt Redmond, who believed that our music taste from last week’s show was horrible and asked us to recommend some non-mainstream Christian music. Some names mentioned by the panel: Mat Kearney, Matt Papa, Bill Mallonee, Jason Upton,  Dustin Kensrue, Phil Wickham, Evan Wickham, Sam Knowles, Shawn Lombard and that new cutting edge artist that all the kids are talking about: George Beverly Shea!

Matt Papa’s The Reward of His Suffering Video. A fantastic song that will deeply spark you for evangelism and missions. May the Lamb who was slain receive the reward of His suffering!!!
