Pastor and Friend?

I just read this post about removing the old barriers that separate clergy and the rest of the church. Do you think pastors should descend from their high and lofty pedestals? Do you think pastors should be friends?

Before you answer, remember that means those same pastors might come to your house and critique your DVD collection, or the dust on your Bible. It also means those same pastors may come to you for hope and honesty.

Before you answer, think of how much would be asked of you. You may have to participate in leadership, offer accountability, or even [*gasp*] …. personal prayer with the pastor.

Are you sure you want to do this?
