An Ancient Lesson in Pastoral Ministry from the Apostle John

Dr. Greg Thornbury shared this powerful story of the apostle John in a chapel message a few years back, and today it came flooding back to my memory. It has nourished my soul today at the end of a week that has had its share of pastoral burdens. I couldn’t copy the text here without bringing over all the lengthy footnotes, but it is well worth the 5 minutes it will take to click on the link and read Eusebius’ account of the beloved disciple going after one of Christ’s sheep.
