Last Friday I had the privilege of hanging out with Kurt and Jake- two friends who work for Saddleback Church about 2 hours North of us.  We’ve known one another for years now, crossing paths from time to time at conferences and training events for youth ministry.   They are now filming a weekly podcast through Simply Youth Ministry- the same publisher that I’m currently in the process of writing a book for that is due out in early 2012.

It’s entitled “As for Me and My [Crazy] House.  – guarding your heart, marriage, and family from the demands of ministry

So that, among other things, led them to call and ask me if I would be a guest on their show and talk about this juggling act we all do in ministry.  Since I was local enough, I drove up and hung out with them for about a 20 minute interview and some chattin’ off camera afterwards.

It was tons of fun and a joy to do.  It’s “Episode 6- released Sept 4, 2011” and if you want to give the interview a listen, here’s 3 ways you can do that:

#1. Subscribe or download the video here on itunes.

#2. Subscribe or download the audio here on itunes.

#3.  Skip itunes and watch it directly on their website here:  simply youth ministry show.  Fast forward to minute 12 or so if you wanna just cut to my interview.

If you give it a listen, I’d love to hear your thoughts and perspective on the issue too.
