“A typical senior pastor transition in a baptist church comes in three phases: rush, replace, and regret. That’s why there are so many short ten-year guys out there..they go out and they execute a replacement and then they begin to get buyers remorse and things can get weird.”
“To be living with your head up and open to ‘ok something we didn’t expect that is a wallop just happened; if God is sovereign, He might mean something by that.’”
“If there’s a deep conviction that the church is to be a place where the stream of God’s work and God’s will are moving, no one particular person other than Jesus himself is suppose to matter all that much. You should be able to coherently continue and execute God’s will for your church, whether or not a particular person is around to champion it.”
