"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

How About Pastors With Other Jobs

Most do this.

"I don’t feel that there is anything bad about having a full-time pastor, but our little portion of the body of Christ is making the intentional choice to work in the world, simply because it seems to give us more street cred, more natural interaction with the culture, and less need to put money into propping up a program to keep consumer Christians content. Although it is often more difficult to manage life, our struggle is everyone’s to share, and it helps the Christians who join our community know that their lives, vocations, and struggles matter deeply."

(Hugh  Halter. FLESH)
