Stress—it’s an all-too-common part of life. It not only affects individuals, stress impacts families as well—and, would you believe, church families. Who hasn’t been part of a church that’s experienced stress?
Healthy Christians have learned how to offload their stress onto Christ. That’s what our Lord wants us to do. Healthy families are good at praying together, casting their cares upon the Lord, and discovering that He truly cares for them. And, healthy church families know the very same secret.
Think about your past experiences with congregational stress. Did the congregation try to handle the stress on its own? Or, were the people good at off-loading it onto Christ? The two approaches are very different.
I sincerely invite you to read my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
This book gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said from the pulpit when they come to worship services in the church where you serve as pastor.
