On two stages of being a pastor.
A title received at once, a role you become as you live into it.
The work worthy of a life indeed.
From Love Big Be Well:

You’ve entrusted me with this place among you, but I know I must show myself trustworthy and earn the deeper belonging, the deeper bond. I received the title pastor after a vote, but I will only become your pastor after years of laying sturdy stone upon stone. This is the way it’s supposed to be. This is work worthy of a life.

Love Big. Be Well., Winn Collier, Eerdmans, 2017, pg 44.
