Our guest on this episode is Tom Nelson. The subject of faith and work is very near and dear to Tom’s heart. He is president of the faith and work organization Made to Flourish, a pastor, and the author of several books including: “Work Matters,” “The Economics of Neighborly Love,” and, most recently, “The Flourishing Pastor.” In this episode, Tom and Dan discuss the world of faith and work, and Tom’s profound, lifelong commitment to bridging, what he calls, the Sunday to Monday gap. Tom’s most recent book, “The Flourishing Pastor,” offers a framework for ministry leaders to get out from the crushing burden of stress and crisis. Whether you are a pastor yourself or simply a faithful believer ministering to a weary world through your daily work — issues of over-commitment and burnout, along with the need for accountability and discipleship are nearly ubiquitous. Who are you leading? Who is leading you? As you listen, we invite you to consider what flourishing leadership might look like in your life.
