    Mondays with My Old Pastor

    Monday, March 14, 2016

    I want to recommend a book to you that I believe will bring a lot of encouragement to you no matter where you are in your ministry journey. You may also want to recommend it to your husband. It is Mondays with My Old Pastor by José Luis Navajo and the subtitle is “Sometimes, all we need is a reminder from someone who has walked before us.” I believe you will find nuggets in this book that will be life changing for you.

    Here is a brief description of what you will find in this book:

    “Deep inside in some uncertain part of my soul persisted this strange exhaustion that was difficult to explain and hard to endure,” writes pastor and author José Luis Navajo . Thinking of quitting the ministry, Navajo doesn’t know where to turn until he begins meeting with a seasoned man of the cloth—his “old pastor”—who, through successive Monday visits, offers a legacy of wisdom in the form of fifteen unique principles.

    Mondays with My Old Pastor brings every believer to the feet of the Teacher. In lyrical prose, Navajo shares the personal anecdotes, fables, and deep spiritual insights offered by the old pastor and his wife. By turns funny, heartbreaking, and thought provoking Mondays with My Old Pastor is a comfort to anyone who struggles in his or her walk with God. As readers follow Navajo’s journey from desperation to rejuvenation, they will find themselves similarly transformed and inspired. This moving, beautifully written account is sure to reignite every soul’s longing for renewal.

    I trust you will purchase this book and learn from someone that has walked before you. If you have a “seasoned” pastor or pastor’s wife in your life, glean from them because they have a lot to offer.

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
