Pastor's Ponderings

My life as a pastor is more than just a second career. It is actually depending on how you count my third or fourth career. I have stated on many occasions that sometimes I ask the question of God, “How come it took you so long to lead me to be a pastor?” God’s answer on those occasions has been, “You were not ready until now.” My long journey to become a pastor began much earlier than what I recognized as the leading of God. 418 more words
