The Fear of Most Pastors

11069

This sign, “You Are Now Entering the Mission Field,” is at the edge of our driveway at Christ the King and it was also in our parking lot at my last congregation as well. Sadly, signs like this become quickly overlooked by all because they require no action. This cartoon sums up the concern of most clergy that their members are too fearful to engage the world outside of the walls of their sanctuary for a variety of reasons. To top it off, most clergy are also afraid for the same reasons.

May the Lord help us overcome our fear and lead us to serve Him faithfully every day!
