There is nothing wrong with working a secular job. There is nothing inherently less worthy about it. We can’t all be in full-time ministry. Yet, I feel strongly about how God has led me to this point, and it is *quite* discouraging to now be a thirty-something and performing tasks way outside my training. I attempt, to varying success, to glean lessons for when the day will come when I will be in vocational ministry. My goal is to start to writing about these lessons, not only to crank out some writing, but also to serve as a reminder of my growth now, as well as what men and women in the congregation deal with on a daily basis.
The first is that for those people who have secular jobs, and especially when families are thrown in the mix, free time does not exist.
