Ever sit and talk with your pastor about something other than church?
Sadly many don’t really know their pastor, minister, preacher, whatever term you prefer, outside of the church service.
The conversations with the pastor are often limited to vague comments about the sermon after church. Or very specific critiques about our personal pet peeves at church.
What do you know about the preacher’s likes, dislikes, hobbies, background. What does he get excited about? What does he get frustrated by?
Take time to know him/her as a person. Find out what goes on beyond the pulpit. Beyond the office.
You might find a great friend…..
