How many pastors can say, honesty, that they enjoy their congregation’s board meetings? I mean, really. Sure, plenty may know them to be important, necessary or even strategic, a means to an end. But what about enjoy them?

I have not always enjoyed board meetings or other meetings of congregations. At their worst they have been tedious, plodding, stuck, conflicted or superfluous. But not now, not here.

I am the most fortunate pastor in the world. My board is full of people devoted to their church, acting in its best interest, who like one another and  make important decisions they feel joyful about. It’s not always smooth sailing. It couldn’t be and still be church. But it is possible.

I know because I am a witness of these things.
