quote of the week

The possession of any kind of spiritual authority is a solemn responsibility rather than a privilege, and its possessor must constantly be aware of the temptation to domineer over those for whose spiritual welfare he is responsible; he must also beware of the danger of using his position for his own ends, whether as a means of making money or bolstering his own ego.

–I. Howard Marshall, Acts (1980), 158

The masculine pronouns should not be read as an escape clause; this truth applies just as equally to women pastors/ministers/vicars.
