A Pastor Who Reads His Journals

Darryl Dash (guesting at Trevin’s site):

Pastors, like doctors, face the temptation not to study. There’s little short-term payoff for study. Nobody in my church is begging me to read Calvin’s Institutes or John Frame’s The Doctrine of the Word of God. In fact, they roll their eyes if I talk about these books too much. They have no idea how much they need me to read them. . . .We need doctors and pastors who read their journals. I pray for pastors who can provide substantial help for their people because they continue to feast on what God has revealed, and because they’re doing the hard work of translating theological truth in the service of the church.
