compromising moment

How much of pastoral ministry
is intentionally devoted to admonition and teaching
to produce spiritually mature people?
pastors are not seen as spiritual directors
or teachers
whose role is to pastorally admonish and mould character,
but as employees of the church
to work as program-managers
and people-carers.
The spirit of compromise reduces the ministry
to a politically correct,
peacekeeping corps
