I know the burning question that must be on your mind right now. What is a pastoral counselor? The obvious answer is…wait for it…a pastor, who is a counselor. Right? Well, the answer is maybe! I myself, as a pastor, decided to pursue my graduate degree in Mental Health and Counseling. However, my intent was not so that I could be a pastoral counselor, but rather become a better pastor who has the ability to counsel.
I recently stumbled across this phrase. The Christian Atheist: Believing in God but Living as if He Doesn’t Exist. This is the title of a book written by Craig Groeschel. I saw the main title and was a bit taken aback. A Christian Atheist….what the heck is that? I then saw the rest of the title. Ouch. Needless to say, I bought a copy and have recently finished reading it.Details
