An Insight

An interesting quote from Gary Harbaugh's book The Pastor as Person:
Pastors are persons. Most of the problems pastors experience in the parish are not caused by the pastor forgetting he or she is a pastor. Most difficulties pastors face in the parish arise when the pastor forgets that he or she is a person. (9)
There is a need to reflect on this idea, because there are times, frankly, when pastors can get into big trouble when they forget they're pastors. If you have any thoughts on this, I'd love to see them here in the comments.
