Just got back from our first "elder visit" of this fall schedule. What a great night, spent in meaningful and encouraging conversation with a young couple in our church.
I used to pray like mad that I would be able to visit like this, but it always seemed so difficult to make it happen. Now, I cannot imagine pastoral ministry without them.
I think I will blog more in the coming days on how we go about doing these visits. Tonight, I just wanted to whet the appetite of all you pastors out there! This is a good and necessary thing!
