Pastor Cath Mode
be not afraid; facing fear with faith; part 2 Be not Afraid of Weakness
2016.06.26 22:36:59

Wells writes that there are 2 dimensions of discipleship. "One is the learning of habits and the forming of character....But the other...is the acknowledgment of weakness, the asking for help, the naming of failure, the request for forgiveness, the desire for reconciliation, and the longing for restoration..." p.35 

So, GOD IS MADE KNOWN IN WEAKNESS MORE THAN IN STRENGTH.

 

I have been in ordained parish ministry for over 30 years now. This month I got my medicare card in the mail. It is just a natural time to be reflecting back on success and failure in my ministry. I was one of the early women clergy. At seminary I was in the minority. Some of my classmates didn't approve of my being there. It drove me to be "an excellent student" to prove them wrong, and to perhaps bolster my own confidence in my call. I was one of the first two women to be called as a pastor developer, to start a new congregation. Many colleagues doubted I could do it alone (So did I, to be honest) It was not unusual to hear from people I met "A woman pastor? Oh I have never met one before." So I worked extra hard to prove my competence. 

 

I probably am a work-aholic, over-achiever, perfectionist. Recovering now because I no longer have the energy to keep it up nor do I desire to keep at it. There is freedom in letting go of unrealistic expectations. Now, as I look back, it was not my strength that moved anything ahead in that first parish, it was my "weakness." In those days I weighed 110 lbs and appeared to be about 20. I didn't look the part of a "strong pastor."

 

Actually, I think that worked to the advantage of the congregation. I suspect members would look at me and think to themselves, "That woman needs help." I couldn't sing and many joined the choir. They didn't think I should be out knocking on doors alone so they joined me meeting people in the neighborhoods. I had only small children so the young moms figured I needed help in planning Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. I knew nothing about construction so many stepped up to be on the building committee. I knew nothing about art and so local sail makers designed and made our banners. And so it went. 

 

That woman did need help! And it brought out the best in my congregation. I give thanks for those supporters in that first parish and my current partners in ministry. We need each other.

 

Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. 

Little ones to him belong, I am weak but He is strong!

 

What do you need help doing? Has someone helped you accomplish what you could not do on your own. How are you stepping in where there is need? Where have you experience God blessing your weakness?
