Church ministry can be a dangerous job
The local church ministry is a dangerous job. It doesn’t appear to be, but statistically it ranks in the same category as deep-sea welders and loggers. It is behind crab fishermen, but ahead of munitions workers. The ministry is a complex calling, where compartmentalizing is impossible. No one involved in ministry leaves their work at the office at the end of the day. A quick stop at the supermarket can result in an impromptu counseling session. Standing in the checkout line can become an opportunity for outreach. Pastoral visits can take place at the post office, coffee shop or restaurant and at the least expected time.
