R.D. McClenagan had a post on Gospel Centered Discipleship about lessons learned as a rookie pastor. He says, "My first year of pastoral ministry was like being dropped into a battlefield that I’d only read about. Yet, there I was, in the midst of the destruction of sin and the brutality of a world following the enemy, trying to discern what it actually looked like to be in the trenches, pastoring the people of God. It was terrifying."
Kenny Conley started a series of posts about how sometimes in ministry we suck. Here are parts 1 & 2. He says in the first post, "Sometimes you suck and that’s okay. What isn’t okay is not owning it."
