Catch a Second Wind

There is an alternative to moving [out of your current ministry]… It’s staying where you are and pumping some freshness and new life back into your preaching. If you move you might end up repeating the same pattern at another church. No, I think you ought to stay right where you are. Work on your preaching. Improve it. Revitalize it…

You have a lot to learn yet about the ministry. Too many young preachers leave the seminary fired up with enthusiasm and vision, only to lose it all after a few short years. That freshman spirit might get you through your beginning years in the parish, but sooner or later you must learn how to catch a second wind. The ministry is not a hundred-yard dash; it’s a marathon! Young Timothy hadn’t been at work too long before the apostle had to encourage him to rekindle his gift!
