I have to say I am a little disapointed that no one from my congeagtion has posted about what an awesome pastor I am…sigh… 😉 In all seriousness, I am somewhat surprised by the lackluster response to our Eugene Peterson book giveaway. So far we have only 3 entries. As a result we have decided to extend the entry period through until the 23rd February.

All you need to do is write a blog post or leave a comment about a pastor who has had a positive influence on your life. You will need to tell us:

  1. What it is you appreciate about them?
  2. What makes them a good minister?
  3. Anything else you can think of!
  4. If you blog – please post a link about the giveaway.

Now I understand that some people, myself included, have never had that ‘exceptional’ pastor. Therefore, why don’t you tell us about what you think would make for a good pastor? Just an idea…

The three entries we have so far can be found HERE, HERE & HERE

Finally, can I say, this is far more important than winning a book, it is about celebrating those who week in and week out faithfully serve the gospel vocation. I hear a lot of whining an complaining about bad pastors from bloggers and very little positive stuff about what good, healthy and faithful ministry looks like. So here is our chance to change the story. Even if you’re not interested in the book, I challenge you to tell us about a good pastor or the pastor you wish you had! 🙂
