I recently had an argument with my pastor, where I called him ‘silly’ and now I’m full of both shame and remorse. This ‘red mist’ just came over me and my foul temper got the better of me – I even threw a paper cup onto the floor! The cup was empty, but that’s not the point. I can’t explain my actions, nor do I condone them. Now I can’t even look my pastor in the eye without feeling ashamed of myself. What’s the next step for me? Can I ever go back to church?

Spit your dummy out, apologise to your pastor for your ‘tantrum’ and move on.
