When Congregants Have to Pastor the Pastors

When Congregants Have to Pastor the Pastors March 29, 2018


Years ago I heard a story of a pastor who lost his faith.

I’ve heard various renditions of similar stories. None of which I know or could confirm to be true…

Regardless, I imagine this is how our biblical parables were pieced together; while incongruency is there, the moral of the story remains.

But, Like any other person’s faith, this pastor’s Faith didn’t die overnight; it happened slowly, steadily, and then suddenly… all at once.

Some might call it death by a 1000 cuts.

No pastor should have to pastor alone.
