Well for broadcasting yes, but when it comes to being a minister, counselor or even a friend to someone I don’t know at all… no, I didn’t go to school for that.
So, when I get a call asking me how to help them get over low-self esteem, I fumble. I can pray with you, but really that’s a question that’s not easily answered. It’s like asking a person how to achieve world peace. When I get calls for help with food, clothing and toys for kids, I can direct them to agencies, but I’m at a loss. And, it bothers me.
At times, I get calls that I believe are people joking around, like the low self esteem call. After I fumbled around for an answer to give him (yes him), he says, “yeah, well sometimes I keep the lights out in the bathroom because I can’t stand to look at myself.” Really? Was it a prank call or was this someone hurting.
Anyway… I become troubled with this part of my job and do the best I can to navigate this calls properly, but I guess I’ve just got to get better. I don’t remember feeling this way in Urban or Light Rock radio.
Hebrews 13:16, Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.
On a more humorous note, drinking and driving is against the law… drinking and dialing should be too. It’s just too hard to get your point across:
