Job Posting

Here is a job I found posted on a website of a revivalist (still not even sure what the heck that is) that is coming to Sarnia.

  1. I wonder how many people read, “Lukewarm, superficial, arrogant need not apply” and thought oh shoot, I guess I’ll have to find something else.

  2. Hey Nathan… I don’t know if we officially met or not (when Paul presented his paper at the pastor’s fellowship), but I know you from there and from his blog. Anyway, I was just looking around here and things look really cool. I thought you might appreciate some of the conversation over here. It’s a ‘diverse conversation’ to say the least, but a productive one, I hope.

    Anyway, have a great day!

  3. I kept seeing the word hungry. I am all the time. Heck Im hungry right now, hmmmm pancakes….. hmmmm. I had a Pogo before bed last night; it didnt really sit well with my stomach this morning. Do you ever get hungry when your stomach doesnt feel too good? I cant until lunch, I made a really good sandwich.

  4. Anyone who thinks that he meets all the criteria for this job shouldn’t dare think about being in the ministry because they’re deluded.

    I feel guilty after reading this.
