Some of you might have noticed that there is an article in the most recent Christian Century with a Disciples pastor in Minneapolis by the name of Dennis Sanders. I haven’t said much about it, but I wanted to provide some background to the article.
Steve Thorngate, the editor sent me an email over the summer asking if I would take part in the magazine’s series on ministry in the 21st century. So began a number of emails back and forth, with Steve asking some really good questions and I trying to answer them as best as I could.
I do want to say thanks to Steve for being patient as I tried to answer his questions and for giving me the chance to think about my ministry. There are a lot of good people that have been interviewed for the series. I don’t know if I’m at the caliber of the other ministers, but I am glad to tell my story and the story of the wonderful church that I’m honored to serve.
