Busy Busy Busy

Pastor and author Kevin DeYoung says that churches are often the culprit in perpetuating busyness among their congregations.

The senior pastor of University Reformed Church (RCA) in East Lansing, Mich., and author of Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully Short Book About A (Really) Big Problem, told The Christian Post about how the church can contribute to the problem.

"I think the church is often a culprit in the busyness, especially in the evangelical church. Again, it's part of being Americans. Part of being evangelicals too is that we're highly activist," said DeYoung. "We are always diving in, willing to solve problems, and again there's a lot good there. But we also need the theological balance that the Kingdom is not ours to bring or ours to create."

DeYoung also told CP that the Church should call people to lead "sane lives" and should better understand when parishioners cannot take on certain church projects.
