You might be a preacher if……

You might be a preacher if… You`ve paddled at the seaside wearing a clerical collar.

You`ve ever dreamed you were preaching only to awaken and discover that you were.

You`d rather negotiate with terrorists than the church organist.

A Sunday School picnic is no picnic.

You`ve ever wanted to fire the church and form a congregation search committee.

You`ve ever wanted to lay hands on an Elder, and you weren’t thinking of praying for him.

You often feel like you`re herding cats rather than shepherding sheep.

Your sermons have a happy ending; everyone’s happy when it ends!

You`ve never preached on TV, but your wife made you get down before you break something.

BUT  It’s your job to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable
