Matthew A. Thomas, bishop of the Free Methodist Church, North America, spoke at the 10th annual School of Psychology, Family, and Community Research Conference, Awards Luncheon, and Lecture on the Integration of Faith and Professional Practice. His lecture entitled “The Burdens of the Church in Pursuing the Unachievable” evaluates how pursuing the unachievable is perhaps one of the greatest faith challenges church leaders face. He states that we are pursuing something with vigor that will likely never be achieved in this part of life. For example, the mandate of Jesus was to “make disciples of all nations,” while the admission of Jesus was that persecution will always be with us. Another mandate of Jesus was to serve the poor and provide justice, while the admission of Jesus was “the poor you will always have with you.” How, then, do we go forward?
