The numbers grab our attention. The stories concern us. What stories? Why do those numbers grab our attention and concern us? This episode talks about people, about pastors, about families, about churches. In Next Step Leadership, Chris and Tracy engage in a conversation about these issues. But they are not just discussing the facts and trends. They invited their friend Rick Womack to tell his story. Listen. Please listen to Rick’s story. Pastoring is an honor and it should be seen as such. But serving in ministry is not easy. It offers wonderful experiences while also bringing the reality of how people who love deeply are also hurt deeply. What can we learn from stories like Rick’s? How can we be here to offer listening ears, loving hearts, and practical therapy for ministers who are carrying a heavy weight? Dreams do not always go the way we wish. They might die. Hurts are deep. Counseling and friends are important. Rick talks about how God and His people can help us endure. Let’s believe God and His people can help us all find peace.
