Church Leadership Humor

The Current State of Christian Music
A friend sent this to me from Gray Matter. It made me laugh:

This reminds me of being a teenager in the local baptist church. How many of you played 'between the sheets' with the hymnal on Sunday nights? If not, it's a really simple game... you just take a song title and append it with 'between the sheets'. It made for some infantile humor sitting in the pews for a bunch of teenage boys (and girls).

Why do pastors leave the ministry? Several common issues emerge from the research of Dean Hoge and Jacqueline Wenger: preference for another form of ministry, the need to care for children or family, conflict in the congregation, conflict with denominational leaders, burnout or discouragement, sexual misconduct, and divorce or marital problems. Of these factors, which form the basis for the central chapters of Pastors in Transition, two are especially important: conflict and a preference for specialized ministry. A close third is the experience of burnout, discouragement, stress and overwork. As the authors explore these factors, they provide significant insights into what can be done to help people stay in ministry. imageEat This Book: A Conversation in the Art of Spiritual Reading
