I am just glad that my priest's job is ONLY to be a priest. Not sure how I would feel if I knew my religious leader was doing this "on the side" for extra money.

Does this mean that you don't really have that link?

I didn't think so, otherwise you wouldn't be making up such outrageous stories, lol.

I am wondering what it is that he's doin "on the side" that she finds so distasteful, lol. And, I'm wondering how she knows what he does. And..... I am wondering how my pastor entered the discussion at all!

Fowl has a point, Cru. Why do you waste an imagination like yours , and the services of a really talented editor, I am sure you could make a little money on the side in the creative writing field!

I dunno, her first pope did a little fishing on the side & seems to have done OK by the faithful.

I am wondering if we are reading different boards. How does this response in anyway relate to the post that you're responding to? This seems to be quite common.

The priests I've known have done much more than just be a priest. They've coached basketball teams, they've counseling married couples, they've organized mission work, they've led volunteer programs and activities, and more.

The pastors of smaller, protestant churches I've known have done even more - simply because they don't have a huge mulit-national organization behind them to provide them with resources. Pastors of smaller churches don't have missals provided for them, they don't have guidelines on what scriptures and message to convey each week, etc. They have to do it all out of their own congregation, which often takes the form of paid staff.

To that's_fowl: The minister at my parents' church used to do a lot of counseling for members of the congregation-- for free. He did have a lot of speaking obligations around the country, but I think he was paid for those by whoever asked him to speak.
