Always good reflection from you, Jim. Thank you.
Thank you, Jim. I feel honored to be mentioned in a comment with a Desiring God post. Great insight you shared.
Well, it didn't make sense to me either when I read it again. :) I just updated that section. See if that helps.
Yes, and these areas may be different for other pastors with different skill sets. But, even without the pastor can lead others with them.
You respond the same way as you would a paid person. Check my post tomorrow and see if this helps. But, you handle it with grace and truth. It can be even harder, but if they aren't a good fit you still must find a way. I find many times refocusing them to another area better suited for their gifting helps. If they are difficult to work with anyway there's even more reason to do something.
