Sermon Duds

Tony Reinke has a most helpful post with meditations on what John Newton said about how to respond when your faithful pastor preaches a dud sermon. Please take the time to read it.

I found myself resonating with Tony's reflection on something Newton said. He writes that in many instances, "the pastor carries within himself a greater desire to serve you than he has the gifts to make it happen."

That's where the people of Christ Baptist Church live. They have a pastor with limited gifts and unlimited desire to care for them. Each week their pastor falls short of serving them as he desires. Please pray for him and them.
