On pastors and their people...

Pastor Rob Allen shared with the interns this quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer, taken from Life Together:

"A pastor should not complain about his congregation, certainly never to other people, but also not to God. A congregation has not been entrusted to him in order that he should become its accuser before God and men..."

What a moving and challenging thought for pastors from Bonhoeffer.

Glad to be back in touch,
