I saw this on Christ the Truth blog yesterday. This looks at some of the challenges modern day pastors are faced with, and the decisions that they must make with regard to their priorities in ministry.
Preaching, says Brueggemann, is a bigger priority than many additional roles the main preaching pastor might also be given such as social worker or budget manager.
I think preachers have to decide what the main tasks are and practice enormous self discipline about not being drawn away to do other things that do not properly belong to the ministry of word and sacrament.
