I just recently read a post that reads that the one who made that post has a part time job playing the organ in her church. Any ideas on this subject? Should "positions' like that be a paid position? Will it soon become we will have to pay people to teach SS, keep nursery,write the preacher's check, take up offering,go on visitation, etc.? I get to open service just before SS and then teach SS pre-teen boys, sing in the choir, preach every so often, and when I stand to testify. I don't get "paid" any monies for any of these, but the benefits are out of this world! Is the church in such sorry shape we have to resort to paying people in the service of our Lord? I agree the full time pastor should receive double-honour, not lip-service, it just doesn't buy the groceries. Anyone who doesn't take care of the man of God, ain't right with God. The man of God is to be full time caretaker of the flock the Lord has given him to over-see, so let's don't get bogged down in that respect, I'm asking this as pertinent to other positions in the church. Thanks!
