The Very Worst Pastor

July 22, 2011

Today marks the final day on the blog that I’ll be absent while in Mexico!

And guess what? Today, there is no “Best of the Blog” post. I’m not featuring a guest blogger. Because the guest blogger is me. I’m just not…here. I’m over at Jamie the Very Worst Missionary’s blog.

There was one question that kept coming into my mind as I tried to decide what to write for the Very Worst Missionary…

What’s it like to be the very worst at something?

No one ever sets out to be the very worst.

We all want to the best at whatever we try to do. And if we can’t be the best, then we want to at least be decent. And if not decent, then at least not embarrassing. And even if we embarrass ourselves, we hope there’s still someone even worse than us, so we aren’t the very worst. Everyone needs some poor sap nearby so we can say, “At least I’m not as bad / uncoordinated / stupid / ugly as that guy.”

It turns out, I’m the very worst at quite a few things. But you’ll have to go to Jamie’s blog to find out! I’ll see you right back here on Monday. Cheers!
