Ann's post about being hurt in church made me think and talk to some pastor friends and their wives about it. How do we keep the hurt from making us bitter or cynical towards church work in general and church members in particular? How do we maintain a good attitude and still minister towards those who have hurt us? We all know that we ought not to feel bitter. We all know that we ought to minister to those who have hurt. But how do we do that? What steps have helped you?
