God help me I’ve been there.
My income sucks and I’ve been known to pass half my morning dough nut in the offering plate!!!! can I still come?:-)
That is soooo what is happening these days!!It is more about numbers(growth) and money!!
It is about how people are doing on the inside, that is far greater than any amount of money……That is why God said LOVE not money(the love of money is the root of all evil)..
Seems to be what it’s all about at times doesn’t it?
See but you can’t see the thought bubble of the soon to be member. He’s thinking:
Geez, all the pastors around here look completely miserable. They must be paid a pittance. Whew…Finally! No more pressure to wine and dine the church staff on my Caribbean island during “Pastor Appreciation” month!! 😉
do mean there’s such a thing as pastor appreciation month on caribbean islands? you’re kidding, right?
Okay, I’m kidding about the island. But there are the great Superbowl tickets, the Christmas SUVS, the fishing expeditions, and the free monthly landscaping. I’m sorry if my comments are making you covet what your brother expects, I mean is blessed with.
re Chris’ donut: half?? Wow, ten percent would have sufficed!
ha ha ha ha Julia you crack me up!! Great pick up.
