If you are like many pastors, some Monday mornings can be very blue. Your sermon did not go as well as you had imagined. A widow complained to you after the worship service that you did not visit her in the hospital. She figures she is not as important to you as she thought. Perhaps she needs to change her will and not leave a chunk of her estate to the church.
It rained, was cold, and attendance was down which meant the offering was down. Both the mortgage payment and staff salaries must be paid before another Sunday. Three laypersons turned you down for leadership vacancies saying they did not have time or were not interested.
