have you ever thought about your pastor and what it has taken for him to be who he is? what makes him a good pastor?
his love for god?
his love for you?
just what is it?
how much work did he have to do to get to be who his is today? some stuff is caught and some stuff is taught: how much of what makes him who he is is taught?
my own seminary training really prepared me well for life in the ministry.
i got a good biblical foundation,
i got a good theological foundation,
i got a good handle on who i am as a leader.
but most importantly, i learned how to think.
my job involves teaching pastors how to think so they can face the world and find solutions to its problems.
