Rob Bell

"Go into any church office and ask the leaders, “Is this sustainable? Are you more rested and ready to go than you were a year ago, or is this thing gradually killing you?” Just this week I asked a seminary student, “What day of the week do you not answer email? When do you take a Sabbath to remind yourself that you’re not a machine, you’re human?” And he said, “I don’t know if I can do that right now.” I was like, “Well, if you can’t do it now in seminary, what happens when you have a real responsibility?”"

from Leadership Journal, Winter 2010, p. 31
