More Excellence

Here's yet another perspective on ministerial excellence from the Sustaining Pastoral Excellence outfit. It argues that Excellent, like exclusive, can be an ugly word, or a lovely one, depending on where you sit. (a great story about Carl Sandburg for your sermon-fodder file...)

Christine: all of great info from Duke reminded me of THIS REPORT from "Pulpit & Pew" about what the laity expects from their ministers - as well as providing an important reminder that our people truly do WANT us to succeed, and will often give us all the help we need if only we are willing to ask.

In any event, I've been enjoying these posts, and saving the resources for future use. Enjoy your summit. The rest of us are looking forward to a full report
