Valiant for Truth - A Pastor's Reflection Series

A Pastor’s Reflections: Hope in the Face of Death
VFT

I can distinctly remember entering the hospice room and hearing the medical machinery around the bed whir, beep, and make barely audible noises that indicated that the old man lying before me was alive.

 
 
 
A Pastor’s Reflections: Theological Junkies
VFT

Within the Reformed community people place a high premium upon theological learning and knowledge. On the one hand, I think this is a good thing. There are far too many Christians who barely know their Bibles.

 
 
 
A Pastor’s Reflections: Time Management
VFT

I think poor time management is one of the biggest challenges for pastors. Unlike some jobs, where there is a regular routine (say, a garbage man, one who drives the same route most days at the same time and through the same neighborhoods), a pastor’s schedule can vary from week to week.

 
 
 
A Pastor’s Reflections: Shyness
VFT

I can remember very distinctly how as a teenager I was mortified to meet new people. I was, and still am to a certain extent, a shy person. Give me a choice – stand before one thousand people to speak for an hour or lock me in a room with two people I’ve never met before, and I’ll choose the former.

 
 
 
A Pastor’s Reflections: Always On
VFT

As the pastor you have a responsibility to meet, greet, and get to know the people in your church. If Christ calls and knows his sheep by name, then ministers ought to reflect Christ in their pastorates.
