When to Call Your Minister
Our 100th Anniversary booklet, written in 1990, included a page entitled “Call Your Minister.” It is as true today as it was then.
- WHEN YOU ARE FACING A SERIOUS PROBLEM
Most ministers have been trained to help people with their personal, family and other problems. The important judgment of a spiritual leader, together with his prayers for Divine guidance, will enable you to face your problems with confidence. Don’t allow your problem to get too big for you.
- WHEN SOMEONE IS INTERESTED IN THE CHURCH
You constantly meet young people and adults who are in your community, and others who have not united with the local church. Put in a good word for your church and tell your minister about the prospective members.
- WHEN THERE IS ILLNESS
Your minister is as near as your telephone. His presence, counsel, and prayer will be helpful. You minister will appreciate your phone call when you, your loved one or friend is sick or going to the hospital.
- WHEN THERE IS DEATH
Your minister should be notified when there is a death in the family. He can give comfort and counsel at this difficult time.
- WHEN YOU MUST MAKE AN IMPORTANT DECISION
If you are a young person and face a decision about going to college, arranging your course of study, or choosing your life work, make an appointment to see your minister. The viewpoint of your spiritual adviser should be considered.
- WHEN THERE IS A WEDDING
Your minister should be consulted before the wedding day is set. Since you will undoubtedly desire to have one or more conferences with your minister, it is advisable to contact him well in advance of the wedding.
- WHEN SOMEONE DESIRES TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN
Happy, indeed, is the minister who is asked to talk with someone desiring to become a Christian. Tell your minister about friends of yours who are interested in knowing more about the Christian faith.
