An always-available pastor

Not long ago, I was in a rideshare car on my way to a noon Wednesday testimony meeting at a Church of Christ, Scientist, in my city. My interest in the Christian music the driver was playing on the radio initiated a conversation about our love for God and church.

In the course of the conversation, he began talking about the pastor of his church. He and his pastor had been best friends for many years, but recently he had discovered that this man had engaged in an extramarital affair. He expressed his heartbreak and confusion about the situation. My heart went out to him. The driver clearly loved God, and expressed so much joy about being a Christian, but was feeling so disappointed in his pastor. We shared some Bible passages about God’s care for His flock, and I tried to encourage him.
