“A pastor should not complain about his congregation, certainly never to people, but also not to God. A congregation has not been entrusted to him in order that he should become its accuser before God and men…. He had better examine himself first to see whether the trouble is not due to his wish dream that should be shattered by God; and if this be the case, let him thank God for leading him into his great predicament…. What may appear weak and trifling to us may be great and glorious to God.”

— Dietrich Bonhoeffer
