Today, I had lunch with a pastor friend from the county. We are from a different background, ethnicity and even experiences but God sovereignly brought us together about 10 years ago. It is a friendship that I cherish.
We realized that it has been a very long time since the last time we connected. We shared about our families, ministries and even future visions. It is always encouraging to hear from people who are remaining faithful to their vision and calling.
Afterwards, I realized once again the special needs that pastors have and how they need someone who can connect with them on that level. It was just refreshing to hear from a fellow brother some of the things that God was showing him and how it was in the same vein as some of my own personal convictions.
I am trying to squeeze in more times like this… it is good for my soul.
