On Thursdays I usually have a group of Pastors here at our church facility for lunch and a couple hours of fellowship, sharing, and accountability. Our church secretary Jean fixes the lunch which is always great and then we share what is happening in our lives and ministries. It is a very enjoyable and profitable time for me. I always gain ideas for ministry and am encouraged in my own efforts to serve people as a pastor. I have been at this pastor thing for over 38 years at JBC, and one of the reasons for my endurance and staying here for this long has been the input of other pastors into my life. I am so thankful for the friendships that have developed between me and other guys who are doing the same thing as I am. God always knows what I need to hear and experience each week.
