TranstioningMy mentor, Greg Surratt of Seacoast Church in Charleston, was passing through town when I sent a Twitter message to see if he wanted lunch. This day was my official first day as the pastor of First Anna. While we ate, I talked with him for over an hour and a half. In this conversation, Pastor Greg gave me a piece of advice that has stuck with me: “Have thick skin and a soft heart, and never mix the two up.”
