Back to School also means Back to Church (hopefully).
During my time serving churches, it was hard not to dread the approach of “Ordinary Time.” It wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy Summer, but that I didn’t enjoy looking at an increasing number of empty pews each Sunday. The good news was that the annual migration of the flock was usually only temporary; come August, the long lost sheep would start showing up again.
And so, this one’s dedicated to all of the pastors who’ve patiently rode out the “off season” and are gearing up for a new Church calendar year. May God bless you with patience and perseverance as you care for your potentially malnourished and sunburnt sheep.
Thanks for looking! Please consider taking a moment to “like” and “share” if you appreciate what you’ve seen.
