Brian Jones has a wonderful post entitled Your Pastor’s Dirty Little Secret. It’s all about why pastors contemplate quitting the ministry. He names two major reasons, and neither is to do with loss of faith or doctrinal issues, nor are they to do with ‘moral failings’. One is the problem of nasty and divisive church members who have never been confronted, but who have been allowed to continue to wreak havoc. The other is boredom.
