Have you ever woken up thinking about something stressful going on in your life or work? That’s been happening to me the past few days.
Most everyone reading this knows that I am a pastor. Just like every organization and every individual in America, the church has also been impacted by the financial crisis. I’m not waking up thinking about my own financial situation (even though my wife and I practice creative financing), I wake up thinking about the financial health of the people in my church and of the church itself. The next decade is going to be full of major changes in how we do church and how churches are funded. What will that look like? Is the church preparing herself for those changes?
Now that you know a little more of what wakes me up some mornings, if you think about it, lift up a prayer for me and all the pastors you have relationship with, as I’m sure many of them are also waking up with similar thoughts.
