Clouds Without Water

Yesterday, I worked on a book chapter entitled, Empty Pastors: Clouds Without Water.

In it, I explore the reasons why ministers end up running on empty, when the Gospel they carry is so rich and FULL of life, joy and peace.

Pastors Run Empty. . .

1. When Responsibilities Exceed Energy.
2. When Pretentions Exceed Reality.
3. When Pleasing Exceeds Shepherding.
4. When Outflow Exceeds Inflow.
4. When Serving Exceeds Loving.
5. When Duty Exceeds Delight.

You got it anonymous!

When self-serving exceeds love for others.

Empty words without action.
