Can I rant? Oh please let me rant. Tonight at the Pastor/staff Parish Committee meeting, we did several things. First we counted answers to the survey the committee did in order to find out the direction the church should go in as far as hiring staff. And secondly we interviewed a candidate for the Youth Minister Position. On one of the surveys, which had to do with hiring, this was written in the comment section; "I think the Pastor should do the announcements and welcome during worship." All together the committee and I said; "Please." I am sitting there thinking, what does that have to do with hiring staff? I know I should know that answer, but I am too tired to pull it out of that hat. And we have a lay worship leader who is willing and able to do those things. Okay, so what about this don't I get, or don't want to get. At Wadley, I did everything, it was more like the Abi show. It is exciting here to share some of the worship leadership role. I think it is also pleasing to God. I am into that empowering the laity thing, not depowering them. I think that was Jesus did empower not depower. Okay off the rant box. Your turn.
