Practical advice for encouraging new gifts in vocal ministry
I asked a question about how to deal with emerging gifts in vocal ministry: how to notice and encourage a new minister without stepping on the tender shoots nor inflating beyond good measure?
Drayton recalled a Friend he had known who would come up to you after meeting for worship and say, “I was thinking about what you said in there. And it made me think … (whatever had come up for him).”
It let you know that he had noticed and gave an idea of his reaction. But it wasn’t empty or awkward praise or discouragement.
I like this suggestion a lot and I’m going to try to practice it. What do you think?
