Reflexive blog--Thing #6
I am following a blog about cross-cultural ministry and I saw an interesting post today. It was titled "50% of Today's Pastors will not retire as Pastors". I thought that it was an odd title so I read the article and it was interesting to see how the concept of ministry and even the concept of "pastor" has seemed to change so much over the past few years. As I read further, I agree with the idea that our concept of pastor is far too limited. When we think of pastors we tend to only think about our local churches. However, many people use their pastoral gifts in different locations and ministries.
