If a pastor works, but his/her congregation is not there to see it... is the pastor really working?
One of the worst questions anyone can ask me is - "What do you do the rest of the week?" I just never know how to answer it. I could always have someone follow me around, but it is amazing how much that changes my week... I don't read, visit/text/contact anyone who might be anonymously suffering... and I start hearing about all their things, and it turns into a really long visit, while this person thinks I'm doing nothing. It's kinda tricky.
So... if you are one of those who thinks your pastor has free time, and that they might want to fill it up with something on your mind right now, or... you think he or she just doesn't really do anything... then give them a call, but chances are they won't answer right away. Probably because of their impending golf shot. ;-)
