Tomorrow I hope to publish a categorized list of over 400 of the best online resources on pastoral ministry. While putting this together I realized I had collected a number of posts from pastors looking back on their ministries and drawing lessons – 174 to be exact – from their experiences. I’ve included links to these posts underneath (one from a pastor’s wife).

The most repeated lesson in the posts was the need for pastors to give a much greater priority to their marriage and family.
