“You Might be a Pastor If…”
~ You’ve waded in a creek wearing a necktie.
~ You’ve ever dreamed you were preaching only to waken and discover that you were.
~ You’d rather negotiate with terrorists than the church organist.
~ You see a picnic as no picnic.
~ You’ve ever wanted to fire the church and form a congregation search committee.
~ You’ve been tempted to take up an offering at a family reunion.
~ You’ve ever wanted to give the sound man some feedback of your own.
~ You’ve ever wanted to lay hands on a deacon, and you didn’t mean praying for him.
~ You often feel like you are herding cats instead of shepherding sheep.
~ Your sermons have a happy ending…everyone’s happy when it ends.
~ You’ve never preached on TV, because your wife made you get down before you broke something.
~ You feel that it is your job to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.
