In this season of life I am taking in a lot of information and I wonder how I will look back on these days, and what I will determine I missed.
My favorites are:
12. Plan for prayer days.
15. Spend more time getting to know your people and less time trying to figure out the culture of your city.
22. Keep reading. Please keep reading. Boldly ask for a book allowance. The rule is not absolute, but I question a man’s call to ministry if he does not like to read.
33. Make time to make friends. In the long run neither you nor your church will regret the hours invested in personal relationships with other pastors, old friends from seminary, and kindred spirits in the congregation.
All of Kevin’s suggestion are spot on and I recommend reading them and meditating on them.
As for #33, I am still waiting for those new friends in Portland to talk life over some beers, any takers?!
