I have met people who, upon meeting them, they would proudly share all their "ministerial" activities in their local church and community.
Then they would ask me, "What are you doing?"
I have to be honest. I have been involved in ministry in our churches over the years. But, unless it is to encourage others, (like my dear friend who shared that she was the lay minister for newly diagnosed cancer patients)I'm extremely uncomfortable talking about it.....
