This one’s for all of my colleagues who’ll be on the road this week.
It’s also for anyone who has to deal with questionable theology popularized by country music (or any other media). I’m not saying it’s a bad idea to trust in God to guide our lives (it’s actually a very good idea), but that doesn’t mean we’re automatically freed from responsibility for our words and actions. In short, ask God for some road signs, but don’t put on the cruise control.
Thanks for looking, and blessings on all of the United Methodist pastors heading to new churches this week and also upon the congregations who will receive them.
