You know you are a pastor when…

You know you are a pastor/minister when…

  • Everyone edits their f-bombs and s-bombs when you enter the room.
  • You edit your f-bombs and s-bombs when entering the room.
  • Relatives hide the booze when you come over their house for the holidays.
  • You hide your booze when your relatives come over your house–any day.
  • People tell you their deepest struggles within any random casual conversation.
  • You avoid all conversations as much as possible cause when you tell people your deepest struggles they laugh.
  • You believe people do not think you are human, fragile and normal.
  • Everyone around you knows you are not normal….human? Heck, yes!
  • You love and hate your job with equal passion and at the same time.
  • You have a choice, but not really, since it is a calling.
  • The thought of doing anything else bites! Being part of people’s lives and helping them grow and find Jesus makes every minute worth it!

  5. HA!!! Awesome.
    My mother-in-law told me one of her church friends (in her 60’s) was a bit offended that I wrote the word “pissed” in my blog. Her exact words were, “She uses that language and she’s a Pastor???”

    When my MIL told me this, I was thinking, “Good thing she doesn’t follow me around on a regular basis and hear my REAL language. Yikes!”

  6. HA!!! Awesome.
