Luke 13:8-9 And he answered him, ‘Sir, let it alone this year also, until I dig around it and put on manure. 9 Then if it should bear fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down."
I am 5 years into my ministry at my current rural post and 5 weeks into actively rebuilding my grandpa's old truck and there are many parallels. In this blog, I will use that platform to consider the joys and challenges of rural ministry, but it all starts with one assumption: You absolutely must love it.
