My resignation letter was written.
It was skillfully crafted and I was ready to show it to Dianne and tell her my well-founded reasons for wanting to quit the ministry.
As we sat in a beautiful seaside cafe I told her I was tired, discouraged and over it.
Then I showed her the letter. She read it and then put in her pocket.
I never saw it again.
Dianne told me that she wasn’t going anywhere and that there had to be another way.
Thankfully we found another way and I didn’t quit.
There have been other times when I’ve wanted to quit and walk away from being a pastor.
What has kept me from quitting?
