It’s common in churches to say that our budget acknowledges our priorities. How we spend our financial resources surely represents our values in a practical way. However, there is another indicator of our priorities. Our use of time is an even more accurate indication of values, yet little attention is given to the “time budget” of how our members, staff, and pastors are asked by the church to spend their time. A good question may simply be:

How do we allocate our time and ask others to allocate their time?
