Old Idea Still Looks Good to Me

What if effective pastoral leaders who become cabinet members had their own congregations as a part of their job??

They might be less prone to stew about the old days when they were a real pastor. With very few exceptions, most actually complain about missing their previous life in the pastorate. Yet another example of this is here.

The last thing we need is more unhappiness. It doesn't have to be this way! Ministry can fit a person's gifts and graces. It is about being being faithful to your gifts and stewarding them to be best of your ability with God's help and for God's glory.

The goal is to serve God and others with a loving heart, and yes, that does include being true -faithful- to your own best self and what you know about yourself.
