The constant demand of American adults who expect their pastor to magically keep up with their every need, visit them if they missed a Sunday worship gathering, and personally make them feel good through all issues of life is pathetic. This is NOT want Jesus did when He walked the earth, nor is it what He taught His followers to do.
It really is time for a CHANGE inside the church! Your pastor has bigger things to do. “Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers.12 Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ.” [Eph 4:11-12 (NLT)]
My friend, stop being a spiritual fan, and take on the responsibility of God’s work. The pastor is the coach, not the player. You are.
