Life Status: Good

It’s March Break – a break for parents as much as kids. No morning rush, no traffic jams outside Christina’s school, no making lunches in the morning. It’s amazing how good life is minus a small bit of the everyday rush. I’ve really been enjoying preaching lately. Actually, I’ve been enjoying pastoring lately. Last year, when I once felt like quitting, I saw Bill Easum post the following in response to a pastor who wanted to quit after four years:

Brian, four years is a very short time. I would encourage you to dig in a stay. The best ministry ALWAYS starts after the 7th year and gets better every year. I stayed fresh because we were always going deeper into new forms of ministry that caused me to have to keep learning. So that is how I would measure the length of stay, as long as they are willing to keep growing and you are willing, stay and enjoy the marriage that occurs around the 7th year and then everything gets easier and better from there on. bill
