Would you want me (or somebody like me) to be a member of your church? I am well educated, very opinionated, a veteran of 33+ years in full-time ministry (most as senior pastor), a perfectionist, gone much of the time out preaching so of little use in my home church, a college professor of homiletics, etc. Would you feel awkward, threatened, insecure, cautious? Would you look over your shoulder all the time? Oh, I do tithe!
