Description

This small book will call to you on days that the janitor reads you the riot act, the church secretary jumps down your throat and those home school parents just won't leave you alone. In this book, Doug Fields shares the wisdom that has helped him survive over 25 years in ministry: Just say No. That two letter word (that often feels like a four letter word to some people!) has the power to help you stay in ministry for the long haul and keep your family intact and thriving. From the book: Jesus said "no" to good things...?no" to significant things...?no" to important people. He was 100%God/100% human and he had limits. He needed solitude. He needed time to reflect and pray and nourish his spiritual life and time away from those bonehead disciples. He needed space. And, Jesus had a lot to do. You try being the Savior of the world! He had a short window to accomplish his life mission and yet he seemed to prioritize and live so different than we do. To say "no" in ministry is to be radical...to be radical is to be counter-cultural...to be counter-cultural is to be like Jesus...to be like Jesus should become our goal.
