An interesting point made by Diogenes today: "It's easier to get hold of a shepherd's crook than a flock."
He's talking about the trend among mainstream Protestant churches that ordain women, but can more easily find homes for them in professorships or episcopal chairs than as actual pastorettes. Seems the parishioners just don't turn out for the ladies.

Reminds me of what an old friend once cautioned me when I was considering becoming a pastor as a Protestant myself: "There are many people who aren't called to the ministry, but go anyway."
