Pastors’ work hours tallied in new survey

This is why we get paid the big bucks:

A telephone survey found that 65 percent of the 1,000-plus senior pastors surveyed work 50 or more hours a week — with 8 percent saying they work 70 or more hours. Meetings and electronic correspondence consume large amounts of time for many ministers, while counseling and visitation often suffer, along with family time, prayer and personal devotions.

Brad Pitt and Christianity

May 30th, 2011 No comments

Brad Pitt announces that he has “issues” with Christianity, but doesn’t explain why, in a brief article at the Christian Post:

“I got brought up being told things were God’s way, and when things didn’t work out it was called God’s plan,” he said. “I’ve got my issues with it. Don’t get me started. I found it very stifling.”

While he’d rather avoid talking about the topic because “so many wars are spawned by it,” Pitt told Time he feels “comfortable playing within the religious iconography, because I lived that.”
