Focus on lay ministries and leadership

The ad hoc  “what I expect in a minister” thread at PeaceBang’s Beauty Tips for Ministers blog seems to be winding down; it seems to have hit a few nerves but has still only scratched the surface of ministerial formation, ethics, expectations and the implied spectre of clericalism.

I’m going to take the next few days of posts and dedicate them to questions of lay ministries and leadership, including the “neither fish nor fowl” status of licensed and commissioned ministries commonly found in some Protestant churches.

Except for one post, dedicated to one of my eccentric clerical interests. You will be able to tell it apart.
