It is Monday afternoon. A pastor friend stops by to see you unexpectedly. As you speak, he appears troubled. He tells you that earlier that morning, he wrote his resignation letter. He explained that his church is not growing, his leadership is dwindling, and his energy is zapped. Because of the demands of ministry, he and his wife are having marital challenges. His teenage son, who resents Christianity, has threatened to run away from home. The pastor admits that he feels like a failure as a father. He is thinking not only about leaving his church, but also about leaving the ministry altogether. What do you say? What biblical advice do you give? Your thread must engage the course readings and appropriate Scriptures to support your advice.
