A thought on counseling . . .

Yesterday, I received a wonderful note from my professor on a recently returned assignment regarding pastoral counseling:

So much of being a good pastor is simply being there and being willing to listen. The need to provide answers to problems is frequently our own need and not the need of those we counsel.

If you are willing to listen without judgment and walk beside those who suffer, you will be a wonderful pastor.

These are great insights!! Denver Seminary rocks.
