The Perfect Pastor

Last night was my first Church Council meeting at Scottsville Baptist Church.  I enjoyed hearing reports of the ways God is moving and am looking forward to the future.

As we were concluding the meeting the Deacon Chair indicated he had something to say.  With a serious tone he read the following:

"The Perfect Pastor"

According to the survey, the perfect pastor preaches exactly fifteen minutes.  She condemns sin, but never upsets anybody.  She works from 8:00 a.m. 'til midnight, wears good clothes, reads good books, drives a nice car, earns $60 a week and gives $50 a week to the poor.

She is 28 years old and has been preaching for 30 years.  She is pretty and enjoys working with teenagers, but most of her time is spent with senior citizens.   She smiles all the time with a straight face because she has a sense of humor that keeps her seriously dedicated to her work.  She makes 15 pastoral visits per day and is always in the office when needed...

We were in hysterics by the end and I left with a happy smile on my face.  What a great group of folks.
