I try not to oversimplify complicated situations. It’s typically a disingenuous and lazy thing to do.
So, to clarify, this post is a bit of an oversimplification of my perspective on church ministry. But it happens to work for me this time. Forgive my inconsistency.
Understand that tweet , and you understand part of what makes this pastor (me) tick. You could easily push back on the simplicity of his tweet–pleasing an entire congregation can actually be extremely difficult–but that would be missing the point.
I’ve endured countless eye rolls, under-the-breath comments and complaints. Maybe they’re signs I’m doing some of my job correctly.
