This Wall Street Journal article blows my mind. If you want to be sure that your pre-worship lattes are hot enough and that your band's lead singer doesn't have pitch problems, just hire someone. For $1,500.
Perhaps a better idea would be for the church body to have a servant's heart and take the initiative to change the light bulbs themselves. Also, when visitors are in attendance and the church is less than hospitable, shouldn't the leadership should do some evaluation and admonition themselves? It would save them $1,500. (Did I mention that this guy charges $1,500?)
The part that bugged me the most was that this former pastor "had a cover story just in case..." The last time I checked, God hates a lying tongue.
