Program Note--sorry for the sloppy audio...

Alright, we know that unless Jesus returns first, we are going to die. So, pastor, are you ready? Have you prepared your family and your church for your death? In this episode, Matt and Chris talk about facing up to the reality of your mortality and steps a pastor should take before God calls him home.

Chris is still out of the country, but he found some time to talk with Ben about a few things pastors should consider when talking to a search committee. There are some red flags to look out for in this process, but does that mean the door is closed?
