Encouraging, honest and helpful blog series by CJ Mahaney on “Ordinary Pastors”. This is a must read for all pastors who consider themselves ordinary. My favorite? Part 9: Be Amazed They Came Back! Here’s an excerpt:
I think you should be amazed that those who heard you preach last Sunday come back—and even at times bring guests. No one should be more amazed than the ordinary pastor when people return. Why should I be amazed? Because I preached last Sunday!
Hilarious (and true).
