I have been chomping at the bit to share this book with you!
I read it a few months ago but wasn't sure when was the right time to share about the book and my review.
We're not perfect, we make mistakes and sometimes people get hurt.
worked at a church,
helped park cars
(and that is hard to swallow as well).
Our stories are all too familiar: The church we once loved broke up or our favorite pastor was fired or the musicians all left when the elders cracked down on the style of worship. The former pastor had an affair or the new pastor doesn’t support Israel or the youth leader rebuked the teenagers for wanting to date. And so it goes.
Stephen Mansfield has been there. Though he is now a New York Times bestselling author, a popular speaker, and a man who advises leaders around the world, Stephen was also a pastor for twenty years. And he loved it for most of those two decades. Then he learned how much a church can hurt. Thankfully, he also learned how to dig out of that hurt, break through the bitterness and anger, stop making excuses, and get back to where he needed to be with God and his people.
Praying for you...
