Three Year Thoughts

Three years ago today I began my life as a minister. Here are some very quick thoughts at this anniversary:

Good things
People responding to Biblical preaching.
Seeing growth in people’s lives.
Pastoral visits in people’s homes.
Friendships made.
My own deepening faith.

Some not so good things
Personality clashes.
Denominational frustrations.
My own tendency to laziness.
Two churches/one minister.

On the whole these three years have been a real blessing to me. I’ve learnt to depend on Christ in all things because I’ve quickly realised that I’m not that great. Here’s to the next three years and beyond.
