    Observations about a couple of these articles:
    On the matter of saying no–a lesson I’ve had to relearn lately–don’t delay on learning this one. The overload will tear you down, steal your joy, adversely impact your family and your ministry. Learn it soon.
    On the matter of “preacher boys,” I’m a firm believer in the mentoring process as that was my path to the ministry–at age 60. Now, maybe it’s my age, my northern ears (as it’s largely a term out of the south), or the way I’ve heard the term used; but often I hear it to be condescending–markedly so–even in some cases to be demeaning. Just a caution to the way it is used.
