The conversation about clergy financial compensation continues. Dave Warnock says:
As a Methodist Minister on a fixed income set by the national church that often causes difficulty, it is easy to compare myself to people materially far better off than I. But what a cop-out that is. My role model should be Jesus and my guide should be his teaching. According to both those I am condemned by both my thoughts and actions. Fortunately, Jesus is also the answer to that condemnation.
And John Battern is about to meet with his Staff-Parish Relations Committee to talk about his salary. John says that formulating an ethic of clergy pay is complex.
