I meet new church nearly planters every week. The number one thing I sense in church planters is restlessness. Our culture is knee deep in the rising waters of restlessness, and it has led us down the raging river of discontent. Even as ministers of the great gospel of grace deep in our souls we are asking, “Am I missing out?” People call this phobia “F.O.M.O.”; fear of missing out. Ironically our fear of missing out drives us to relational comparison on twitter and secretly envying “that church” or “that leader”. You are left wondering why your church seems to be the only one struggling.

My bout with restlessness has led me across the globe, but it has also led me to envy other churches and leaders.
