One of the most important callings in the church is that of our children’s Sunday School teachers. Without the persistent dedication of these men and women every week, the future generations would have very little help and guidance to know of God and His plan for His children. While being a Sunday School teacher may mean that you don’t usually get to see all of the fruits of your labors, it is important to keep in mind that children are like sponges and even though they may not retain everything we say, you never know which parts will be remembered, so every lesson needs to count.

10 Things to Never Say to a Pastor

bear-pastor-small

Pastors are only human, which suggests they have their own set of peeves. Sure, they are called to rise above it all—to turn the other cheek, deflect wrath with a kind word, and not be so affected by horribly rude people. But it really isn’t fair to razz the pastor to see how far they can take it any more than it is ok for the village wise-guy to provoke the Buckingham Palace guard to laugh. Let’s stand down a little and show some respect, maybe even some support, for the thankless things they do every day; and whatever you do, try to avoid saying the following things to your pastor: Continue reading “10 Things to Never Say to a Pastor” »
