Pastoral Education

Things we never covered in seminary:

  • Completing parochial reports for the national church, which ask for membership figures not noted in any record book, anywhere ("Oh! Is that what those blank pages are for?")
  • Covering more than $1000 in monthly parish expenses with a checking account balance of $92.00.
  • Calling on a shut-in while simultaneously fending off the advances of an overserved family member.
  • Calming fears which arise over finding a lump in a breast-- by suddenly remembering the presence of a pacemaker.

Yep. That's the last two weeks. Never a dull moment. . .
