I have a question to put out to many of you to ask. I go to a small church of around 30-40, we all know everybody and get along with every one. But the past 2 pastors we have had have done some really strange stuff. Like my father-in-law is a deacon we found out he has a very curable cancer. The pastor has never once picked up the phone called to check on him. It is very hurtful to my family about this cause the last preacher(one before this one) we had my mother had brain cancer but never once did he contact me but he called my father-in-law everyday to check on her. It hurt me at the time and I understand he probably didn't want to bother me. But what is the deal with pastors doing this. I have never known our pastor to go out visiting except when he first moved down here and he came and visited my boys at home cause one got put in the hospital. What am i missing, or is the devil trying to get us to quit the church that we are in or is God trying to move us somewhere more productive in the church? Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem at all.
