What Came Of It

As I look back on decades of ministry, it seems to me to reflect the Parable of the Sower. While in many cases one simply happened to be someone's minister, in other cases one had a deep involvement in someone's life -- through conversion, counselling, intervention -- and other things besides. In those cases of deep involvement one finds, looking back, that some people have disappointed, some leave one guessing today as to where they stand, while some have truly stayed the course -- and this brings joy. OBSERVATION: And one could not in every case have predicted it.
