What Are Job Hazards Pastors Face?
What are our job hazards?
It is true that pastoring a church is not a hard-hat job. It is correct to say that there are not physical dangers that go with the territory. Most of us see no need to “conceal and carry.”
But for sure this calling has its hazards and dangers. Just read the newspaper or check your own heart.
So may we address some of the cautions and warnings that all of us need to avoid the wrecks, to guard our hearts, to protect the body of Christ, which He calls His Church?
One thing for sure all three of us admit: only I can take care of me, with God’s Spirit of course. But one of the ways I can help to do that is to build guardrails and true disciplines into my life, schedule, and heart.
