We are back from Concordia Theological Seminary - Fort Wayne where we have just received some GREAT news for the Family of God and St. Stephen. We have a new Associate Pastor joining our staff this summer and that had us thinking about Call Day and all of the new pastors that will be entering the ministry. Are these men ready for ministry? Sure! Are they ready to suffer? That is a different story that even we are still figuring out as pastors too.
On this episode we take a look at Paul House's book, Bonhoeffer's Seminary Vision, and talk about a scary word: Affliction. We talk about preparing men and women for the ministry in a world eerily similar to Bonhoeffer's day. We also discuss the vital importance of finding a Barnabas, an advocate to go to war with you against the enemy.
