Another quote from Bishop Scott Jones at the Kansas East Residency Retreat:
“I am a Methodist preacher and I will go where the church sends me.”
I was struck by the plain missional approach in this statement. Being in ministry is not primarily about my goals, desires or needs. These are an important part of my life, but as a Methodist preacher, it is not my primary guidance as to where to go and how to be in ministry.
God is at work in the process of making appointments and I am committed to be able to say the same thing as Bishop Jones.
I am a Methodist pastor and I will go where the church sends me.
I saw this ad when I was browsing Facebook. I am not making this up. I understand that pastors could as a whole be healthier, but this is ridiculous!
