After a losing fight with a porcupine, this dog is doing fine, and now that we know it’s fine … what does this picture bring to mind? Who is this dog’s analogy in our world? Which Church leader feels like this?

Santa Paws!
I’m sure Rick Warren feels somewhat like that right now, although I don’t think he has lost the fight.

Unfortunately, I think many church leaders are left like this because they run into a porcupine of a senior pastor. I can’t tell you how many friends of mine are no longer in ministry because they were hurt so bad.

A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a
