Awesome Responsibility

Frederick Buechner in ‘Now and Then’ talks about the terrible responsibility that comes with being a preacher.  To have the audacity to get up, week after week, in front of a group of people hungry for God and presume to feed them !!

He also says that in the end the preacher must be clear about their task …. which is not about people believing in the preacher or even the words that they say – the result of preaching must be that people are drawn to a deeper faith in God

Amen to that !
