John Mark Comer returns to the podcast to debrief his year-long Sabbatical after leaving Bridgetown Church as Lead Pastor, how stepping down from day to to day church leadership impacted his identity, why ministry is harder than it needs to be, the secret life of trees, and why attending a church after you’ve led one can be so hard.

He Gets Us
On February 12th, on Football’s biggest Sunday, more than 100M people saw two ads about Jesus and his message of radical love.
That means millions of people are having conversations in their homes and churches with their friends, families and faith leaders about the ads and how Jesus’ message is relevant to their lives.
He Gets Us, the folks behind the ads want you to be ready for these conversations.
That’s why they’ve created free, donor-funded resources that give you new and exciting ways to share Jesus’ message.
To access the resources, just go to hegetsuspartners.com/superbowl to learn more about He Gets Us and to get your free resources.
