Care and Feeding of Spiritual Leaders, Preface

Over the next week or so, I will be diverting from the normal conversation I've tried to develop on this blog. I am continually aware that while there are profound issues as well as mundane issues filling the blogosphere, there's not a lot out there about ministers, pastors, spiritual leaders, and judicatory officials that seeks to address care and nurture of the spiritual aspect of the vocation. Thus over the next few days or weeks, I'll be posting ideas and stories from my perspective. I look forward to your input.
