Pastors are Introverts

This is not a big surprise to me. We've set up theology to be a thinking man's domain, then complain when the pastor isn't exciting enough. If we could keep action in our theology, perhaps we'd have more action in our pulpits and homes.

I struggle with this too, because I'm a bit more of an introvert myself. There are a lot of days I'd just as soon be left alone. Now imagine that a bunch of the people who hired me didn't like me anymore (another post I saw tonight mentioned that 1,400 pastors leave their churches every month). Then I'd want to spend even more time being left alone.
