Church Apologizes to Three Decades of Pastors
If you’ve been a pastor for more than ten minutes, you have heard of churches that churn through pastors and staff. For one reason or another, the church can not keep people for more than a couple of years before they are looking to go somewhere else. Sometimes it is the pastor’s fault, other times it is a stiff necked congregation, whichever it is, it is depressing… and significantly lessens a church’s spiritual impact. Earlier this week Todd and I came across the story of a church in Indiana that recently brought back a series of former pastors for a service of corporate repentance.
Through the service, the church recognized its rebellious spirit over three decades, and apologized to several pastors by performing a foot washing service.
This afternoon, Todd and I talk about this service, the church, and the lessons that we all could learn from them.
