Becoming Steady Pastors in Unsteady Times

A conversation with Chris Maxwell

Life is like walking downhill over the rocks,” writes Chris Maxwell. “The slopes and sharp rocks remind us of danger.”

Consequently, he goes on to say, “Healthy equilibrium isn’t staying away from the downhill slants or the harsh drops; it is gaining a better perspective on obtaining and maintaining stability there.”

In this episode of the Influence Podcast, I talk with Maxwell about how pastors — and the churches they lead — can get and keep spiritual and emotional equilibrium. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.

Chris Maxwell is director of Spiritual Life and campus pastor at Emmanuel College in Franklin Springs, Georgia, and an ordained minister with the International Pentecostal Holiness Church. He is author of Equilibrium: 31 Ways to Stay Balanced on Life’s Uneven Surfaces, published by True Potential.
