When wearing the pastor hat, are you allowed to be sad, and be open about it? Or do you have to be the unmoved mover?


That being asked, I feel for you Derrick. My grandparents have all died, and I remember each of them in different ways. Some I'm more guilty, or less, but always sad.

good point, Doug. I certainly have been sad wearing my pastor hat. In fact, it's pretty helpful much of the time. I guess the distinction I'm making is the sad I feel entering into the pain of others and the sad I feel that is all mine. maybe there should be no such distinction.


It's called a new normal. And you are well on your way by honoring her, like you have. Much peace and love to you.
