If you, female or male, of any color, stripe or hue, no matter what your life may look, taste, touch, smell or feel like...IF...you consider yourself a current, past or future pastor...consider this...for today...and forever:
No is a complete sentence.
Believe me, we do not need hassled, bitter ministers. We don't want you to talk the talk about this being the day the Lord hath made and that we should rejoice and savor its beauty and poignancy when secretly you're tearing around like a white rabbit; we need you to walk the walk.
And we need you to walk a little more slowly.
