Worth the Read

I read an article recently that has stayed with me all week.  It says so clearly what I am unable to say.  It is a good read for all, but if you are a pastor or pastor’s wife, I hope you will take the time to read and think about what is presented. Not all missionaries serve in the jungles or third world countries, but we each have our own cultural difficulties. When I read this article, my mind immediately went to a young family that I know.  Their difficulties are far greater than mine in many ways. Not all missionaries come back broken, but there is one paragraph particularly that applies to all of us. “There needs to be…grace to recognize that while living abroad, the person sent out from the church has changed. Is the church ready to welcome that kind of changed person back into their arms with tenderness and acceptance?”

Thanks for taking the time read…
