Victims of the rumor mill

The first year of our marriage, Sara and I attended Aboite Missionary Church.  They were in the process of calling a new senior pastor at the time.  When we told friends and family who was candidating, someone warned us that we did not want him as a pastor. 
 
We believed them.  The frustrating thing was that, even though his candidating message was good, we knew he wasn’t good for the church—but no one else seemed to know it!  They were deceived by his good sermon!

Well, Aboite called him, and guess what?  Sara and I loved him.  He was a great pastor!
 
Ahh, the rumor mill.  Be gracious, and give people a chance.
