On The Resurgence site, Mark Driscoll has done an awesome talk on the pitfalls and dangers of full time ministry (esp with church planting). For me personally it gives great advice on how to start out, and make changes now before its too late. Also will be a good resource in the future when I enter full time ministry after college.
Check it out, it’s an 11 part series on video, but points are given in text too.

Even if you aren’t in full time ministry, it is a useful resource for dealing with stress, Christian living, and also gives good tips on how you can help serve your own pastor in these areas.
In other news back at college today, moved back into Chappo last night. Of all the items i could have left at home, i left one of the most needed ones, my laptop charger, very annoying, had to drive back to Narrabeen, but did get to go to soccer training, and enjoyed that, so I’m now nice and smelly and dirty from diving around in the mud.
