This morning, Amy and I hosted my Spiritual Formation class from Wesley Seminary. Thanks to my beautiful wife, the host with the most, for providing a fabulous breakfast. Thanks also to my students who, along with students from other courses, made my first year of teaching such a joy. These Master of Divinity students are serving as youth pastors, senior pastors, and assistant pastors. These men and women are between the ages of 23 and 58. Some have been in ministry less than 5 years and others more than 15 years. They are a delightful bunch who recognize that just as important as skills in ministry is a heart of passionate love for God and the church.
