Today is Reformation Sunday 2015.
Speaking of Reformation, what if pastors, priests, and other pastoral leaders,
instead of functioning like…
- authority figures
- expounders of truth and wisdom
- entrepreneurial spirits who view their role in the life of the church as CEO in a business enterprise
saw themselves as…
- wounded healers
- recipients of grace and mercy
- chastened and teachable spirits who view their role as an example of those who have suffered loss because they had the courage to change, and through it all clung to faith, maintained hope, and lifted up Jesus.
Just a thought.
