Pastor Pastor Kevin A. Thompson recently took time to talk about how pastors can maintain a strong marriage while dealing with the many demands of their vocation.
The church has a lot of hard thinking to do. But as we abandon our unquestioned answers, I’m hoping that we’ll be able to love God—and our neighbor—better.
Those who follow the high calling to the pastorate and who invest their lives in shepherding God’s people often find themselves depleted, with little left over to invest in their own marriages. Intensive marriage counseling through Focus on the Family’s Hope Restored can help.
It’s so important for pastors to ensure that they’re carving out time to nurture their relationships with those who matter most.
In pastoral ministry and in our Christian walk in general, we can easily ignore or lose sight of the reality of Spiritual warfare because it is an invisible battle.
Dr. Jeff Myers teaches us that bumper-sticker theology is not biblical theology. Now is the time to abandon the unquestioned answers that keep us in the shallows when God calls us to go deep.
Even though you might not physically see your volunteers during COVID-19, they are most certainly there. Always, always, always keep the communication lines open.
COVID-19 has been a significant challenge for all of us. The certainties of life and the foundations we’ve depended on have vanished, or at least been rocked. Dr. Wayde Goodall encourages pastors to be as innovative as possible to create ways to communicate and remind their congregations that Jesus Christ is our foundation.
Understanding Jesus as the center of all of reality is liberating. It rescues us from the “me-ness” of “me and Jesus” and positions us to see the world from God’s perspective and bring His good news to everyone, everywhere, all the time.
God allows suffering for a myriad of reasons. Even in the midst of you struggling to meet your family’s needs, God is at work and is helping you to look more like Christ.
