I may regret this posting, but Monday mornings for ministers are a real struggle. We look back on the previous day with a lot of "glass half empty" thoughts. Not who came to worship, but who didn't, and why (we can only guess). Why aren't we (as a church) growing? What am I doing wrong? Would someone else make a better pastor? And then we grab our stack of commentaries and slog on, preparing another sermon that we hope may make a difference, and schedule our visits to folks in need, all the while hoping that God will help us be effective and somehow encourage us.
