Welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew! We hope that you had a fantastic Thanksgiving celebration. Since we were on a holiday schedule, we decided to present a sermon from the Capper on the subject of adoption that he recently preached to his congregation. We hope you are encouraged by the gospel in this message!

Welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew! We are thankful that you have joined us today! This week we are discussing two different issues. First, we weigh in on all the sexual abuse that is making headlines these days. How should we as Christians, and as pastors, think about this major issue? How should we protect ourselves and protect others that we lead?

Secondly, we talk about depression and sadness that seems to be more prevalent this time of year. With the time change, fatigue, crazy schedules, and a lot less sunlight, many people deal with what is called seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Pastors aren't immune to periods of sadness and depression...so, what should we do when we find ourselves in that cloud?

Welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew! This week it is just Ben and Chris in the studio, as Matt is away on a marriage retreat. We decided to chat a little bit about the relationship between a pastor and a state convention or other network. Statistics show that the average age of pastors are increasing, and that younger pastors are not very interested in denominational convention meetings. We chat about why this might be, and how we should think about these types of relationships.

Also...we announce the winner of our Rock-tober book giveaway! Was it you? Listen in to find out!

We really do appreciate you listening to this little podcast, sharing it with your friends, and sending us little notes of encouragement along the way. Feel free to connect with us via email (frontpew1@gmail.com), Twitter (@thefrontpew) or on our Face Book page!

Welcome to a new episode of the Front Pew! This week we are concluding our chat about the reformation by digging into Semper Reformanda, which simply means that we are to "always be reforming" our lives according to the Scriptures. We discuss some areas that we think need to be always reforming in the life of the pastor and the church. 

Also, Chris shares a brief update on his recent medical/health issues.

We would love to hear from you! You can email us (frontpew1@gmail.com), tweet us (@thefrontpew) or comment on our Face Book page. Be sure to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes, leave us a review, and share us with your friends!

Thanks to all who played along with our Rock-tober book giveaway...we will announce the winner next week. As always, we really do appreciate you listening in!
