Pastors & Quarterbacks

Leave a comment

January 31, 2011 by Dwight Bernier

“Any quarterback who became impatient with his blockers and took on those job assignments himself, or who omitted to take the ball from the center and ran out into the secondary as a pass receiver, confident that no one could run pass patterns more expertly than he, would very soon find himself out of a job. Pastors who do similar things each week keep their jobs only because congregations are more gracious and longsuffering than football fans.” – Eugene Peterson, “Five Smooth Stones for Pastoral Work” (p. 221)
