Small Town, Big God

“Over the last year, I’ve told parents that their kids aren’t coming home; kids that their parents aren’t coming home; and spouses that their spouses aren’t coming home. You’re more likely to die of an opiate overdose than a car accident now. There’s a lot of hard—stuff, racism, suicide, domestic violence, depression—a whole lot of problems that only Jesus can heal. And that’s why I’m really just grown in this conviction that small towns deserve to be taken seriously. What we can’t afford is to perpetuate what can happen sometimes, when small-town ministry gets treated like a stepping stone on someone’s journey to becoming a famous pastor. That grieves me almost more than anything else.” — Donnie Griggs
