Pastor Or Manager

In line with Peter Drucker’s quote from my last post, I came across this stinging reproach from Eugene Peterson…. With hardly an exception they don’t want pastors at all – they want managers of their religious company.

In line with Peter Drucker’s quote from my last post, I came across this stinging reproach from Eugene Peterson.

“I am having the depressing experience of reading congregational descriptions of what church want in a pastor. With hardly an exception they don’t want pastors at all – they want managers of their religious company. They want a pastor they can follow so they won’t have to bother with following Jesus anymore.”



Having said that, I want to point once again the John Frye’s blog. He’s the author of Jesus the Pastor. It seems everything he’s been writing lately is goooood!
