What I Wish I Would Have Read 16 Years Ago
Calvin Miller, a long time pastor and writer who I had never even heard of before, has captured my heart with his book, Letters to a Young Pastor. This is the book, aka diary, I have always wanted a peek into. Pastors have a hard time of it. We must love the unlovely, keep a smile on our face, shoulder the burden of the gospel, all while maintaining our own sanity and salvation. Mr. Miller sheds light on his own mistakes in ministry and made me laugh over and over with his personal stories. Ministry is hard, true, but if you have been called, its the only thing you can do. Thank you Mr Miller for helping me to see that I'm not the only one out here who feels this way.
