Married and Replanting Ep. 008: Relating to Relationships

Relationships are tricky.

1 Peter 4:8 reminds us that we are to love each other deeply because love covers a multitude of sins. This can be an easy to do on some days and the hardest thing on the planet on others.

Relationships come in all different shapes and sizes as well. There are our friendships, our dating and marriage relationships, the relationships between parents and children, and then the whole extended family that often come into play. We have relationships with the people we see each day at work or within our hobbies and organizations. And there are the people we see in our church.

As ministry leaders navigating these relationships can be very tricky. How close do you get to the members of your congregation? Is it realistic to call them your friends or is it best to keep everyone at an arms length? Who do you turn to when things get rough and you just need a place to vent and get some perspective? These are all questions that everyone in any form of ministry leadership role have to answer.

This week Dusty and I sit down to discuss how we have navigated those tricky waters in the past and how we are coming at them now in our current ministry. We talk about how we relate to each other within our marriage and parenting, what ministry looks like for us today in such a small congregation, and we even talk a bit about what it’s like to be the pastor to your parents or in-laws.

While everyone has to come to their relationships on their own and navigate those waters in their own hearts and minds with the people they are around we hope that this episode brings some perspective and encouragement. So grab a cup of coffee, a glass of tea, your favorite bottle of root beer, or whatever else suits your fancy and join us for our conversation about relating to relationships.
