However, as a parish pastor and one that works in the lives of people day to day, I fully appreciate a parish pastor perspective. Especially with pastors as they look upon mission from a Lutheran confessional view.
This is why I often read the blog, Live Life Together, by Rev. Jeff Meyer from Christ Memorial in Ficthburg, WI. He writes with a pastoral heart and a deep desire to reach out to the community that surrounds their church. The congregation has been successful in addressing the post-church culture through service and engagement within the culture, while keeping strong with Scripture and the Gospel. Check it out.
