Christmas can be a difficult time for a pastor. Creating a unique angle to a story that has already been told many ways. People in the church have more emotional needs. Demands are high for his time. But as the calls and e-mails mount up, who cares and listens to him?
Soulgardener desires to come alongside pastors and Christian leaders to listen, support, guide, and direct. Pray for your pastor. Encourage them to meet with someone outside their own church to listen to them. Being a pastor can be a lonely place.
If you are a church leader perhaps you should consider adding the opportunity to have a monthly visit with a spiritual director as part of his benefit package.
