Have You Prayed for Your Pastor Today?

post date: May 17, 2009

A friend sent me this over the weekend and I thought I would pass it along. It’s not the whole story about being a pastor, but it’s definitely part of the story. Here’s another reason to pray for your pastor:

This soul-weariness shines through a few lines of sarcasm one minister wrote in his journal: “If I wanted to drive a manager up the wall, I would make him responsible for the success of an organization and give him no authority. I would provide him with unclear goals, not commonly agreed upon by the organization. I would ask him to provide a service of an ill-defined nature, apply a body of knowledge having few absolutes, and staff his organization with only volunteers. I would expect him to work ten to twelve hours per day and have his work evaluated by a committee of 300 to 500 amateurs. I would call him a minister and make him accountable to God.” (H. B. London, Jr. and Neil B. Wiseman, Pastors at Risk, p. 54)
