    I have an on going illness (2 years) that has taken us from a comfortable middle class life to almost living from paycheck to paycheck. I can relate to financial struggles but God has indeed given us food and clothing and we are learning to be content with these things ( hopefully its only temporary though 🙂 )

    “I should be quiet about what is going on in SGM.”- Perish the thought. Keep up the good fight Matt.

    I, too, have some kind of illness that is slowly draining me of my muscle strength. We are not yet suffering financially, but that time is most probably coming. We have lived without a lot less when I pastored and God as never failed to provide for us. May God bless and heal you .

    Hi, Matt,

    Your blog has been thought-provoking and helpful to me as it has shown me that other Christians are going through life asking the same questions that I am and sometimes not getting any answers or sometimes answers we don’t necessarily like or want to hear. Thanks for continuing your pastoral ministry beyond the four church building walls to the wider church. I could “wax eloquent” and try to explain the questions and non-answers I am wrestling with here, but I should probably just leave my comment at this: Thank you for writing your blog. You have readers that appreciate it!

      Thank you Anna. That is very kind. If you ever need an ear to listen, I’m pretty easy to find on social media.

        Hey, Matt – thank you! I do have a question for you: My sister is graduating from high school this year. I was looking for a good theology book to give to her as a graduation gift. Something comprehensible to an 18-year-old, yet thorough. Any suggestions?

    Matt, I really enjoy your blog and it has been an influence on the construction of posting for the Lead Teaching Pastor role at our church…ministry out of weakness so the beauty of the gospel can be seen. Heavily influenced by 1 Cor. 1 – 2.

    Thanks again for your blog and I look forward to readding the next book.

    I was wondering if I might reprint one of your blog posts in our church’s Mother’s Day bulletin(with credit, of course). Sorry to ask here, I don’t see another place to contact you.

    You are so kind!

    Hi Matt –

    Would you be available for a 25-minute, recorded phone interview about your book “The God of the Mundane” next week? It would air over the non-commercial, 9-station Pilgrim Radio Network on our “His People” program. Thanks for considering it. God bless.

    Hi Matt,

    After reading your blog for a few years and reading your books. I can tell you that I wish you and I were friends, not just online, but in “real life”. You and I have such a kindred spirit that it amazes me.

    God bless you brother!

    My wife and I just finished reading God of the Mundane. We were both deeply encouraged by it. I am the Executive Director for a ministry (www.pirministries.org) that comes alongside pastors when they are exited (or, hopefully, before). We often get asked to speak, and I regularly take some recommended reads with me. I think your book needs to be in the hands of every pastor as a reminder of his call to shepherd those who live ordinary lives (and who really live ordinary lives themselves!). If you could point me in the direction of someone to talk to about ordering a quantity, I would be most appreciative.
    By the way, we have a mutual friend…Dr. Zack Eswine.
    Would love to hear from you.
