1500!

“Something is wrong in ministry.”Pastor Jonathan Falwell, Tuesday, May 25, 2010 at the Refuel Conference for pastors

“Fifteen hundred pastors leave the ministry each month due to moral failure, spiritual burnout, or contention in their churches.”From the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute of Church Leadership Development

I want to write about this.  I desperately want to find something to say that adequately expresses how this breaks my heart, and how I believe it is breaking God’s heart.  I have sat here, staring at my computer screen trying to formulate the words.  I can’t.  All I know is that somewhere buried deep within these cold statistics is my name.  Somewhere within this reality is my destiny and God’s purpose for me.  I wish I had the skill to write volumes, but instead I am going to pray that the Holy Spirit will break your heart too.  Sorry if that discomforts or disturbs you, but that is my prayer.
