Excellence in Ministry, continued

Rev. Christine Robinson has some very good notes and comments from the Excellence in Ministry seminar on her iMinister blog. But one struck me so strongly I have to repeat it here. It’s from Dan Aylshire, President of the American Theological School Association:

Excellence has to have a definition that transcends the individual and serves the community.

No matter what our ministry is, ordained or lay, formal or informal, Christian or Buddhist or Humanist or Pagan, serving on committees or leading worship or making the coffee, we have to strive for an excellence that isn’t about “look how good I am” and is about “look what we can accomplish together.”
