My latest contribution to The Pastors Workshop is up. In this column, I consider different stereotypes for pastors. What I’m wondering about is this:

What roles and positions in our cultural setting might be projected onto pastors? If people learn that you’re a clergyperson, what assumptions might they have about you and your ministry? What might folks in your church and community expect of you as a pastor because they associate you with people who serve in roles like yours?

I’ve written this piece primarily for pastors, but it should stir up some thoughts among non-clergy as well. So, I’d urge you to check out “Nine Stereotypes for Pastors.”
