Yesterday I had lunch with a friend who pastors a local congregation. He turns 72 this upcoming year and is retiring. Ministry is, however, a second career for him. He and I were actually both in seminary at the same time.
When his peers were retiring, he was re-enrolling for a Masters program. What makes someone spend their time and money when they know that their time in ministry will be short?
God places calls in each of our lives and we can choose to respond to his leadings or ignore them. What will you do when God calls? What is the faithful response?
At Dayspring, we are in a sermon series on the Fruit of the Spirit. Join us this weekend as we talk about cultivating faithfulness in our lives.
