Since writing the book The Millennial Pastor a lot has happened in my life. I shared it with the world a year ago, and it has been an education. I have learned and grown so much from this experience. I have also received quite a response to my story. Not all of it has been good, in fact, the label “blasphemer” may have been used at one point, but the good has outweighed the bad. This, the good, is something I would like to share, its the good I see in how the established church has responded to me, a millennial pastor.
