Being a Pastor

“I only care about pastoral ministry as a servant of the gospel.

As human work it stinks.

On the level of positive and negative consequences, perseverance in this behaviour cannot be explained or justified.

As a tiny part of the mystery of God’s love in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, at work in the world today, I find it irresistible.”


Dave Hansen, The Art of Pastoring, p.213
