“And I will give you pastors according to mine heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding.” Jeremiah 3:15
My striking memory of the 35th Pastoral Anniversary Services of Pastor and Mrs. Harold Kern in Bellevue, WA. is the love and respect demonstrated by the saints in their church. It was profound, and obviously sincere. It was genuine. Repeatedly, throughout the four days of services, accolades and gestures of gratitude and love were heaped on this deserving couple.
Harold and Pam Kern are not perfect, just as your pastor is not perfect. Harold and Pam Kern have made mistakes and errors in judgment just as your pastor has. Be assured there is not a man or woman alive who is perfect and totally free from fault. Doesn’t exist.
Stick with your pastor. Encourage him, lift him, support him. Tell him of your love and admiration for him and for your church. Involve him in your life, in your joys and in your sorrows. Make room for him to minister to you, to guide you, and to direct you.
A pastor is a blessed gift…a gift from God…to be cherished, loved and honored.
