If I wasn’t a Pastor

If I was not a Pastor these are some of the things I might do:

A Rt. 66 kind of thing, except on a motorcycle

Run a bookstore, not wait on the customers and read all day long

Take harmonica lessons from Howard Levy  (www.levyland.com) and play the blues and jazz in small clubs except when I accompany Delbert McClinton

Write fiction novels with romance, intrigue, betrayal and friendship – man, I love a good story

Do recovery work all the time with people who are at the end of their rope and think no one cares and there is no way out – I feel closer to Jesus when I do this

Run a store featuring writing instruments. I have a pen collection with hundreds of pens of all sorts.  None are terribly expensive, but I am always looking for the pen with the perfect feel. Yes, I know, this is something I should tell a therapist (who had better watch where puts his pen down!!)

An advertising executive. I love a good commercial!!!

I’ll leave it up to you to decide if all this just goes to prove I shouldn’t be a pastor in the first place.

  1. Hi,
    Other than running a book store and being a grouch I dont see why you cant do them all and “Still” be a Pastor. I say bookstore because, well these things take time to run and I personaly would find it difficult to do both, but thats just me. Being a grouch is something i am looking into doing myself, something i always wanted to be when I am old enough, but I do have concerns as weather it is possible to be a grouch and a Pastor, though I would be “Very2 interested in the grouches and day to day rants of a pastor.
    There you go sir, I believe you can do what you want to do and still spread the word of god. (Possible reaching alot more people as well)
