In general, I have a difficult time trusting people. Folks may say this is an odd character trait for a pastor, but I’d contend that, on the whole, this has been a boon for me.
“You need to slow down and let your spirit catch up with your body.” That’s the advice my friend, Peg Horton, used to give me.
I’m a pastor, and most folks have no idea what that means.
Sometimes you just need to share a reflection with the world. A recent memorial service was one of those times.
This has been a tough week. I’ve been a pastor for 18 years, and in that time I’ve dealt with a lot of death. It kinda comes with the calling. This week has been different.
I do a lot of my pastoral check ups via various messaging apps. There are times when I feel guilty about that, but today is not one of those times.
