While our Pastor is on break, we thought it would be fun to look back at some of the most popular blogs he has written. Today’s blog originally appeared on Friday, October 7, 2016. It deals with the subject: WHAT EVERY PASTOR WISHES HIS CHURCH KNEW.

No one knows the hurts, the pain, the sleepless nights and sacrifices of the average pastor and his family. How many hospital calls have been made. How many nights away from home in meetings or in someone else’s home, trying to save a marriage, solve a problem, or just be with someone during the darkest night of their lives. How many missed meals with their family because someone else needed them. How many anniversaries or special occasions had to be postponed or how many of their kid’s activities had to be missed or, at best, they arrived late because someone in the church had a crisis that demanded their presence.

God has blessed us with a Pastor and Pastoral Staff who serve passionately, enthusiastically, faithfully and tirelessly. Today's blog helps remind us of all the sacrifices made to serve us and thousands of others, week after week and year after year, here at Crossroads.

Take a couple of minutes to read it and then, share it with your friends.
