I am considering adding a page to this blog that will especially focus on some special needs for ministers/pastors/church leaders, etc. What I have in mind is sort of a "First Aid" page. (Such a page is not going to be "heart surgery" or a transplant. I’m just not sure that a radical overhaul can be expected on a page of a blog. Such a page will have limitations. However, I really think that most ministers just need a nudge or two in the right direction.)
Many people in these roles get into trouble and often need some direction or encouragement. I do not think that a blog can replace real flesh-on-flesh relationship. Many times we would like to talk with and just be with real people. (I suppose you could take the expression "real people" in several different ways.)
I do think that a page might be useful by providing resources, offering a perspective, and planting a seed thought or two that might help someone get unstuck.
A few questions: What do you think might be particularly beneficial to ministers who need help? As you think about the trouble that pastors can get into (i.e., about to be fired over performance issues, immorality, dishonesty, laziness, family troubles, etc.), what especially concerns you? What do you think might be of particular help to those in various church leadership roles?
