OK, yes, you know I think the whole Unitarian Jihad schtick is ephemeral, silly and counterproductive, and I’m just grateful it isn’t insulting, because we’ve gotten that in the past, too.
But if you need a meme to jump on — not literary blog games, but the real thing this time — might I suggest the less happy but more germane (for the ministers out there, anyway) posting of keen blogger Scott Williams, Why pastors quit the ministry.
He’s a Canadian minister — youngish — and had spilled his guts about how troubling pastoral life is like. (He could have been more plain about the financial peril of the ministry, too.)
I’ve been there. Many — if not most — ministers have been there, and there’s a curtain of shame, doubt, and horror he’s pulled back. Good for him. And good for the dozens of others who have sounded off in his comments since.
