Threat to society
Resources, encouragement, humor for ministers
I've been an ordained minister for thirty-five years serving as youth pastor, senior pastor, denominational
executive, minister of communications at a large church, and now full-time writer/speaker. And every year, it's become a harder and harder
task: unrealistic expectations, carnal board members, furnances that only break down on Saturday nightin Januaryetc. etc.
So, here are some resources, words of
encouragment and excerpts from my humor column each issue of Rev. magazine.
