SEMINARY: MY FIRST FIELD ED EXPERIENCE

HEY PREACHER!

Yeah, you - 

SEMINARY

SERMON HAD AN AMAZING HOOK AND INTRO….. AND THEN WENT ENTIRELY TOO LONG

SEARCHING FOR A CALL

PRETENDING TO WORK ON MY SERMON IN THE OFFICE WHEN I’M CLEARLY STUCK

SERMON WRITING THIS WEEK

WHEN PEOPLE GET DISTRACTED BY THE REFERENCES TO HELL IN THE PARABLES IN MATTHEW

MY FIRST CALL

WHEN PEOPLE ASK ME WHY I STAY IN THE CHURCH WHEN SO MANY CHRISTIANS ARE FULL OF HATE AND EVERYTHING IS FRUSTRATING

WHEN GROUPS LEAVE THE DENOMINATION OVER OUR LGBTQ WELCOME

And claim “biblical authority” and “God’s will for humanity”

CONVERSATION WITH MY MENTOR RIGHT BEFORE I TOOK MY FIRST CALL
