Everyone needs a pastor. Folk hear me say that often. This past Sunday, I found myself leading one of my leaders through a tough situation. He had gotten to the end of his rope and called asking if he could just come and simply sit awhile. I do a lot of things pastoral where I don’t feel pastoral. That meeting made me feel pastoral. As a I held his hand through this situation, I held on God’s hand to guide him through it.
Everyone needs a pastor. We are spiritual beings. We go through the hard things of this lowly world thirsty to touch the high things of God. When we need to navigate through tough waters, we can lean on prayer and the Word. Yet, there are times when we just simply need to know someone is there with us as we walk through a situation to discover the peace we so desire.
