What’s your job description?

If you are a pastor, you will like reading L. Gregory Jones‘ Christian Century article on the job description of pastors. You can pick yours, but I hope it won’t be this one:

WANTED: Person to fill position that involves important but undervalued work; exact job description unclear. Long hours; must work weekends and holidays. Low pay. Master’s degree required; doctorate preferred. Must be accomplished at multitasking, including running an organization without clear authority to do so. The successful candidate will be skilled as a public speaker, manager, politician and therapist, and will devote significant time each week to pastoral visits. The position reports to multiple bosses.

HT to Brad Anderson, again.
