Pastor Points for August 5th
I recently read an article on Churchleaders.com by Josh Reich, the lead Pastor of Revolution Church in Tucson, AZ, entitled "The 3 Lies that Will Wreck Pastors." No 3 on his list was "If I'm not there the church will fall apart."
Josh states in the article "While many struggle with this, I've never actually heard of a church closing beacuse a pastor was gone for a week."
I read this with a smile on my face. It's hard to believe that some actually believe it. Well, things seem to have done well while I was gone last week as they did for 40+ years before I got here, and will for 40+ afterward if the Rapture doesn't take place.
During this time Becky and I did miss you, our church family. We again thanked God that he brought us here and remain excited as ever about the future, and what He has in store for us.
Someone once said, "Humility is a strange thing. The minute you think you've got it, you've lost it."
