Preachers are ecclesiastical “rock stars.

You attend a denominational meeting (or local church fellowship) with other pastors. The key speakers and preachers are ecclesiastical “rock stars.” They tell wonderful stories about how their churches are growing, building, giving, and reaching. The average church in your area, though, is barely maintaining (yours included). When the big names and big churches get so much attention, what is the emotional, theological, and personal impact on the small church pastor? Would this experience inspire and challenge you or discourage and depress you? Explain. Your thread must engage the course readings and appropriate Scriptures.
