Item description for Ministry Is a High Calling (Aim Low): Reflections of a Parish Novice by Kurt Schuermann...

Kurt Schuermann writes with humor and grace about the everyday happenings in a pastor's life. After being forced to purge his book collection by a move to a smaller office, Schuermann discovers a dark truth about himself: he is addicted to ten-step books. In this book he collects the things that he has found to be true since he threw away his collection of ten-step and how-to books. Topics of the fifty-two reflections include the minister's call, church-growth seminars, and the local church.

Publishers Description
This is a light-hearted but thoughtful collection of reflections from a young pastor. The 52 reflections poke fun at everything from church-growth seminars to the church year as seen from the parishioner's perspective (April 4, Easter: Attend. April 11, Off: Tradition to skip the Sunday after Easter. Let the ones inspired by Easter fill the pews. April 18 & 25, Off: Already went in April. Don't want to be considered a zealot. May 9, 16, 23, 30, Mostly Off: Pick one to attend so visitation committee won't drop by.). Titles of reflections include She May Be Orange But Her Problems Are More Than Skin Deep, Show Up And Shut Up: Advice For The Parish Novice, and Ministers Are Slow-Moving Targets.

Pithy, profound and full of common sense  Dec 26, 2009
Insight, experience, humor and profound common sense make this a great book for anyone in the ministry. You'd never know the author is a graduate of Harvard Divinity School for it's clear he puts down-to-earth experience and the simplicity of Christian love before the tinny shine of fancy degrees. Ministers like this help us all keep going.
