Too often today, pastorates are sinecures, and intentionally so. That’s the way the congregation wants it. The pastor is the man who gets paid to show up Sundays dressed appropriately for the tastes of his elders’ wives. He preaches for their approval and makes certain the music is their style. He officiates at those precious moments when a chaplain is needed and the larger his church the more sophisticated his pedigree, degrees, accent, diction, vocabulary, and sartorial displays.

Sinecure is going to be one of my new favorite words.

Thanks for this post.

This is such great wisdom. Thank you for making this essential point; and, more importantly, for how you’ve modeled it through this series of posts. Appreciate you, brother.
