    This evening I have my first interview with a pulpit committee. I got a call from them out of the blue about two weeks ago saying they had gotten my resume (I'm assuming from the local baptist association, since I didn't send them one.) and had gotten a good recommendation of me from a well known retired pastor in the area (He'd been pastor of the First Baptist Church for 30 years in the county seat and had been serving as the interim at my church until we called a new pastor.) I told the guy who called that I had been divorced thinking that would probably scare them off but it didn't, and I sent the church a sermon CD. It's a full time position at a small country church in the Florida panhandle that includes a parsonage. What questions should I expect them to ask me? I expect them to ask about my salvation, the circumstances of my divorce, but am wondering what other questions to expect? Also, what questions should I ask them?
