A wonderful, oncefriend of mine, the late Rev. Dr. Ralph Glenn, once spoke at a minister’s luncheon on the topic of “baggage”: that bundle of guilt and remorse that burdens our lives when we do not confess, and permit the mercy of God to lift it from our shoulders.
I find myself in too many meetings (it’s what pastors do). Thomas Sowell said, “People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.” I’m not in that category. I don’t want to meet, I want to do (James 1:22).
