The Greatest Peril of the Ministry

We’re in the middle of the busiest season of the year here at Cool Community Church. We have dozens of programs, initiatives, etc. that will all be launching in the next month along with nearly half a dozen building projects that are already in process. In his book Gathered Gold Andrew Bonar makes the following observation that I found very helpful/convicting today:

‘One of the gravest perils which besets the ministry is a restless scattering of energies over an amazing multiplicity of interests, which leaves no margin, time, and strength for receptive and absorbing communion with God.’
