Breaking Up is Hard to Do. . .

. . .when you’re a pastor.

Scott Hodge is a friend from back in the day who pastors a great church in the Chicago area called The Orchard Community.

Scott is also a prolific and innovative blogger who currently is posting some thoughts about why pastors tend to get so wounded when church members choose to leave. As I can attest, they often take it as a personal rejection or even a betrayal, when often God is simply redeploying some of his human assets.
