One of the problems with Christian ministry is that everyone is incompetent. Nobody – pastor, elder, teacher, leader – can transform a life, never mind transform a whole community of people.
– Darryl Dash, Pastor, Husband, Father, Blogger, Friend…not necessarily in that order.
If you follow the supposed Christo-centric streams of the blogosphere, you will find other folk who will confidently assert (or have their acolytes assert for them) that they are the shepherds of the sheep. They are responsible for the flock. The language of me and mine predominates.
They worry about others stealing their sheep – which is rather confusing as the sheep don’t belong to them – for how can one sheep own another. They have confused themselves with the One who leads us. And He is quite capable of transforming a life, a family, a community – the world – even though we all be stubborn, smelly mutton. Even the ones with the microphone standing in the centre of the man made light.
