Today's blog asks a simple question to those in ministry: Do you take Monday or Friday off, and why?

I've been a Friday-off guy for about five years for 3 primary reasons:

  • It gives me some semblance of a weekend (2 days off in a row), though I almost always serve on the weekends.
  • I'm always thinking about the church on Monday anyways. After Sunday, I have a lot of things going through my head. I might as well go in and do something about them.
  • I go into Sundays more rested and physical able to handle preaching 3 assemblies, fellowship, Sunday afternoon activities and small group that night.

Most ministers I know prefer Mondays. The theory is that Sunday wipes everyone out…and the rest is needed. No argument here. What else is there?
