It's Too Easy

To want to be loved and accepted by one's ministerial peers, so that we never speak the truth, in love, or do or say anything that might make us unpopular or get us labeled as a troublemaker...

And, conversely,

To want to stand above and critique our ministerial peers, to feel like a pariah, and take some measure of satisfaction and damning pride in the fact that I get it and they don't...

I love C. S. Lewis's "The Inner Ring." Great advice for ministers, and all of us.

But, it still doesn't solve the problem!
