(HT: Ed Stetzer)
- He’s preaching on the love of God.
- A phone ringing while you are trying to preach and while some are trying to listen is annoying, yes.
- But she answered the phone and was talking (!) while he was trying to preach!
- He did what my old coach in high school used to do to many a stopwatch!
Thoughts? Before you post any thoughts, just remember that pastors are called by God and the majority love Christ and His Word—but many still struggle with the flesh. We do not know what this man was dealing with in the minutes, hours, days, weeks, and years prior to this encounter. But with 1500 ministers leaving the ministry each month for various reasons, we need to recognize that this was not an isolated event.
