10 Statements Pastors Don’t Want to Hear From Church Members

These are in no particular order.

1.  (While standing in the baptistry) “CANNONBALL!”

2.  “Pastor, have you ever heard of that Joel Osteen fella?  I just read his book, and it was great!”

3.  “Pastor, you did a good job this morning.  We’re actually going to beat the other churches to the restaurants today.”

4.  “But this is the way we’ve always done it.”

5.  “Pastor, you have it easy.  All you do is sit around and read all day.”

6.  “Here’s the phone number of a good moving company.”

7.  “I know that’s what the Bible says, but…….”

8.  “I think we need to form another committee.”

9.  “I’m just not really into missions.”

10.  “I don’t need that theology stuff.”
