I caught this on Ryan Crawley's blog. Great photos as well.
John Piper on pastoral influence.
I was talking to my friend Emily while I was in Colorado last week and we were talking about what is different about pastors than the rest of the congregation and how do we keep them from falling like Haggard, especially when we're fallen too. The difference lies in our boundaries and our accountability. We need to have stricter lines drawn than those of the world. Anyone that knows me knows I have a television, so I don't restrict myself as much as Piper does, but we need to be well aware of what we are letting into our minds.
