I know that it’s quite culturally acceptable for someone to re-tweet a tweet. Is it equally acceptable for someone (in this instance, me) to re-blog a blog?
Well, never one to be hampered by the cultural mores of the day, I’m going to take the plunge. Simply because this particular blog, published today by Ed Welch of the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation, is must reading. (You can read it by clicking here.)
It is must reading for everyone who is in ministry. It is must reading for everyone who attends a local church led by ministers.
For those in ministry, be encouraged. You (we) are not alone.
For those who are ministered to by ministers, please take every conceivable step to ensure that you are not a part of the problem. But by your consistent and faithful encouragement of your pastors, please purpose in your heart to become a part of the solution.
In the midst of our ongoing spiritual warfare, the cause of Christ is daily losing far too many good people to “friendly fire.” Now is the time for this to stop. We are the ones (the only ones) who can stop it.
