Pastor Butch Gregory is having a bad day. But then, every Monday is a bad day for Butch. To top it all off, today he’s being chased around by a big beluga whale. That can’t be possible? Right? Well, maybe… naaaaaaaaaaaah, it couldn’t be…
For Pastor Butch Gregory it is going to be an extraordinary ordinary Monday.
“If you take seriously your role in helping people embrace life with God, you’ll appreciate Jamie Greening’s playful approach to calling, content and craft in ministry. Take your time with the book, because it may well stoke a range of emotions ranging from that knowing chuckle to an unexpected, reflective grief. Enjoy the journey alongside a Northwest pastor-pilgrim who aims to help.” Cameron Crabtree, Northwest Baptist Convention
“Reading Jamie’s stories made me laugh and cry, as I found myself too often staring into a mirror of my life and ministry… haunting moments, uplifting moments, shameful moments, inspiring moments. All there in the parables and fables of Dr. Greening.” Rev. Mary J. Scifres, National Worship Consultant and Author of Searching for Seekers and The United Methodist Music and Worship Planner.

This collection of stories is a very meaningful read!” David P. Caddell, Mount Vernon Nazarene University

His vibrant storytelling and candid observations about people grip your attention and stimulate your imagination as they shine new light upon the common experiences of life.
