As the week of this Ministry Trainee begins, I have time to ponder the amount of work that lies before me. I have been given the responsibility of doing two service talks, Sunday evening and a harvest school talk. Preparing some of the practical elements of our Messy church that begins on Tuesday. Prepare and lead our youth group on Wednesday. Attend my weekly dose of theology on Thursday, collapse on Friday, and make sure I’m ready for Sunday on Saturday. I also have a wedding to think about next year. Please pray for me this week that God’s work (and mine) will be done this week.
Although I’m feeling the pressure, I am truly thankful that I am being exposed to this pressure because that is what I will have to face when I’m a full-time minister.
