Episode 154: The Blessings and Burdens of Being A Pastor

In this solo episode, Dennis shares thoughts on a topic that has been resonating with many of us in the ministry: the Great Pastor Resignation. Dennis reads his response to an article written by Alexander Lang, a former Presbyterian pastor who made the difficult decision to leave the ministry. Lang's article is not the first of its kind, but it has struck a chord with many of us.

Being a pastor is both a blessing and a burden. It's a calling that comes with its own set of challenges, but it's also a journey filled with profound moments of grace and community. As we navigate these complexities, let's remember to support each other, to engage in open and honest discussions, and to keep our faith alive and active in the world.
