Many of North Carolina’s rural UMC pastors are taking part in Convocation on the Rural Church this week, which I’m finding to be a wonderful source of fresh ideas and fellowship. We look forward to sharing highlights from that event in an upcoming post.
But today, there’s a post by John James on the Clergy Health Initiative blog  that might be of interest to many of you with a passion for the rural church. The Washington Post recently ran a story about rural health care and the challenge of finding young physicians with the gifts and passion (some might even say the call) to work in a rural area.
Perhaps you, like John, see parallels to rural ministry.
