The Parboiled Pastor: The Joys and Pressures
of Parish Ministry
Steven L. McKinley
"Making a difference is fun. As parish pastors we make a difference
in the life of a congregation and in the lives of individuals. Very
few people can make a difference in the way a parish pastor can.
Sometimes the difference we make is less apparent than real, but we
do make a difference -- for good or ill. And that is fun."
