Monday Mission, July 23, 2018
For those among us who grew up in the homes of ministers, we are familiar with the stress that comes when things aren’t going well in the congregation served by parents, so I have a particular appreciation for this program. This morning I opened a card from a husband and wife who participated in the Samford retreat, expressing thanks for the support they received during their visit. “It gave us time, space, and a community to allow God’s healing to take place,” they said.
The world is better because of the quiet work accomplished through Michael Wilson and his colleagues.
