Last week our blog was on the subject of the pastor’s marriage and how we are seeing two trends in the couples we deal with here at Care for Pastors as follows: The husband treats the wife as a doormat.  The wife doesn’t appreciate her husband.

Today I would like to recommend a book that was recently recommended to me and I believe it will be very helpful to you no matter where you find yourself in your ministry journey. It is called, Pastor Abusers: When Sheep Attack Their Shepherd. I always remember Dr. Jerry Falwell’s statement: “You are either in a storm, coming out of a storm or getting ready to go into a storm.” And this is so true in our ministry lives. It…
