Aid for Pastors Suffering From Lack of Pastoral Care

FRANKLIN SPRINGS, Georgia, Sept. 15, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- When pastors fail, when they're hurting, who do they turn to? Most feel that they can't go to anyone for fear of what may be said in their congregation. They silently suffer because they are afraid of the consequences of telling others what is really going on with them. They don't tell their spouses for fear of what it will do to their family. They don't tell professionals because they feel like they're supposed to rely on God alone.

"Pause For Pastors: Finding Still Waters in the Storm of Ministry" is filled with stories that just might help a pastor and his family smile when they hear the word "church." Stories that just might help a pastor and his family pursue help when the weight they call "church" is too heavy to carry alone. Stories of honesty--told by Maxwell and many others--that offer a little bit of peace in the storms of pastoral life.

This book is medicine. It needs to be in the hands of every pastor.
