CPL: What are the most challenging aspects to pastoring a circuit?
I still haven’t figured out how to be in 2 places at the same time! There can be a nagging feeling of being divided. The demands on my time and making decision about how everything is going to fit together are more pronounced with two churches. It is also challenging to try and give direction to 2 congregations going in different directions.
