“Years ago a Glasgow sociologist suggested that the busiest men he knew were pastors and, equally, the laziest people of his acquaintance were also pastors. We all know how easy it is to get slack in essentials. No one is looking over our shoulder and we are never the subjects of a time and motion study!”
James Taylor, Pastors under pressure: Conflicts on the outside, fears within (Leominster, UK: Day One Publications, 2004), p. 53.
I highly recommend this book for any in or contemplating going into the pastoral ministry! You can buy it here.
