This post is just a clarification one.
Occasionally I hear people almost apologetic about reading this blog since they are not pastors. I have mentioned this in some comments, but I want to put it here just for clarity, my focus in writing is on pastoral ministry, but I hope that pastors as well as non-pastors read the blog. I am convinced that pastors need to think more carefully, critically and biblically about pastoral ministry. I also think the people in the pews also need to do the same thinking so they will now what to look for and what to encourage in their pastors. As pastors seek to function more biblically they will need more people in their congregations to support such ministry- esp. since it is often different from many have seen. So, welcome all!
