A Pastor’s Perspective

By: Dr. William Perry

The Task of Shepherding!

Pastors must try to remember at all times that we are ministers to the flock. And we must set out to complete the task of being a shepherd.

I recall a few years back, during a pastor’s conference I overheard a snippet of conversation as I walked through the book displays. The pastor was saying, “I just don’t know most of the people attending our worship services anymore. The only people I see are the deacons and our group leaders I meet with to plan and evaluate our programs.”

A true shepherd knows his sheep and calls them by name (John 10:3). In a congregation of fifty, getting all the names right may not be so difficult. But when you’re the new pastor in a flock of two hundred or more, you may find yourself wishing you could install more RAM in the mental computer. Knowing, remembering, and using the names of the people you serve is one of the most vital ways to communicate that you know them individually. Still, knowing the flock involves more than just knowing their names. It means being with them enough to know their personality traits (impulsive or impatient, artist or engineer), their character (honest, loyal, suspicious, proud), their spiritual gifts, their responses under pressure, their willingness to learn and follow the leader, their ability to handle money. This in-depth awareness of individuals in the flock, and the flock as a whole, should be a priority.

The primary goal of the pastor should be to introduce and relate persons to Jesus Christ. We are to reflect on the fact that we are called to be shepherds, not chief executives officers. By internalizing the Biblical job description of shepherd and redefining the church’s understanding of itself as a spiritual flock, we can positively transform the culture’s perception of the Church of which Jesus Christ is the Chief Shepherd.

Chaplain’s Corner

OFFICERS AND CPO DINNING IN--GRACE

A dinning-in is a formal dinner given by a unit or organization. It may honor a departing member or welcome a new one. The primary elements of a dinning-in are: a formal setting, a fine meal, the camaraderie of the members of the mess, traditional toasts to the President and the Military Service and the attendance of honored guest. There are two officers of the mess. The President and the Vice President affectionately called Mr. or Madam Vice. As the music stops, the Colors posted and the National Anthem played, the President will rap for attention and announce Gentlemen/Ladies, the Grace. The Chaplain will then come forward and ask that all stand and will say Grace. Upon completion, all members will be seated and at the sound of the gavel begin eating the meal.

Dr. William Perry is Chaplain of the USS Berkley DDG 15 Unit

WINTERIZING!

It’s hard to believe that it is time to winterize our place up in the north country.  We went this week to close up our place in Pinetop/Lakeside.  Winter is starting to set in.  But we went to get the job done and we did it!

MUSIC

We got back just in time to join the group for a jam session in the clubhouse.  It’s nice to once again seeing folks exercising their talents.

TIME OUT!

We took some time out on Saturday, October 1 to take a trip over to Willcox, AZ for Rex Allen Days. 

 

On our way over we stopped by Benson at San Pedro RV Resort for a visit with Chaplain Bob and Dorothy Swift.  We had such a nice visit that our plans for taking some pictures went by the wayside.  What a wonderful couple!


In Willcox we pampered ourselves by having a nice BBQ dinner at Big Tex Bar-B-Que.  We were certainly not alone in enjoying Arizona’s finest cuisine.

We took the time to enjoy the Rex Allen Days sidewalk activities as well as a visit from an old cowboy and some pretty good western music.
