Someone I know recently overheard a group of older folks at a local church event seriously discussing how clergy don’t really work during the week–they just sit in their studies and read (all while a priest was incognito at the table).  Here’s hoping none of these folks pass on a weekday, since that would mean tearing ourselves away from reading to bury them–and who wants to do that?  I’d much rather stay in my study :-p

Seriously, if these folks ever wonder why the average pastor lasts five years before hanging it up and going back to secular work, they should mosy on over to the mirror.
