A word from The Art of Pastoring this cold Sunday morning:
Your role as a pastor
and your congregation's life as a church
will both come to an end.
Only the Word is without end.
Therefore be aware of the temporary
and never give it too much importance.
If people gave less attention to the multitude of things
and more attention to the One thing
there would be room in their hearts
for the writing of the Word
and there would be no more need to teach
for all would know.
(Author's observations: Whatever you are worried about right now, whatever is distracting you from the Word ~ it is temporary. Relax. And be free to love.)
