A Few Things I Learned This Week

This is what I picked up serving God’s people in Chicagoland this week:

– “The best new church development pastors are in their 40s and the church plant is their third call.”  (From a New Beginnings consultant)

About a third of those preparing for professional ministry in the Presbytery I serve would like to start a new church as soon as possible.  (From my own observations staffing the Commission on Preparation for Ministry)

Sometimes the bus doesn’t arrive, no matter what the sign says. (From waiting for a bus for 45 minutes before walking to the train station.)

A lot of good people don’t know the difference between being Faithful Church People and being a disciple of Jesus.  (From reading comments shared in a recent local study.)

We can disagree and not hate each other.  (From this book.)
