Do We Know Who We Are When COVID-19 Ministry Gets Hard?

Zack Eswine learned that his mentor had committed suicide. Eswine took a sabbatical from the seminary where he taught and spent six months as interim pastor with his departed friend’s family and congregation. He spent his time foraging “together for scraps of grace and truth amid the wreckage.” Eswine knew that his friend could have chosen to step down from ministry and still have mattered to his friends and family.

Two Conferences God Used in Unexpected Ways

I’m not a huge fan of conferences. I’ve been to so many over thirty years of ministry that I’ve grown a bit weary. I can think of two conferences, though, that God used in an unexpected way in my life. 2014 TGC Atlantic Canada Conference The summer of 2014 wasn’t a great one for me. I was invited to speak at the TGC Atlantic Conference. The real draw for me, though, was getting to hear the main speakers: Ray Ortlund, Jr., and Scotty Smith, both men I admired. I’ll never forget some...

The Trolls Are Coming. These Books Will Help You Respond.

“This won’t take long,” she said. We sat in the foyer of the church building. She didn’t want to venture any farther. We sat in chairs facing each other while she unloaded on me for my failings as a pastor. “You don’t need to respond,” she said. “There’s nothing you can say. This is the last time you’ll ever see me.” If you’ve pastored for long, you’ve probably faced a similar scenario. Things seem to be getting worse these days with the increasing polarization in our culture and the rise ...
