Sometimes you need somebody to remind you who you are and what you stand for.
There was a staff meeting the other day. One of the things about which I spoke concerned two young men in our neighborhood who were not on their best behavior. They haven’t done anything horrendously bad but we don’t want them on our property any longer. The staff was informed that the young men had been informed about their inappropriate behavior and that they are no longer allowed on our grounds unless they have a change of heart. That’s me on my high horse, a bit perturbed, self righteous, and incredulous that even though we tried to reach out, then tried to warn, they actively ignore us.
Then the newest person on our staff asked, “Have you prayed for them yet?”
How dense can a pastor be?
