The Baptist Courier, the newspaper of the South Carolina Baptist Convention, recently ran a series of very sobering articles on the emotional-mental stresses that many pastors experience. The Courier expressed that the first article received more reader response than any pervious published article! That is pretty amazing.
Let me exhort and encourage you to do two things: pray for your pastor daily, and encourage your pastor regularly.
The following are the series of articles:
Suicide, Burnout, and Pastoral Termination
When Pastors' Silent Suffering Turns Tragic
Reaction to "When Pastors' Silent Suffering Turns Tragic"
Pastors need people in their congregations to be the "Aaron and Hurs" holding their arms up in prayer and encouragement!!!
