Hot from Reformation 21's blog, is this report on ICS (Irritable Clergy Syndrome). As one who greatly dislikes the proliferation of various syndromes that is found today, I still found this interesting, not because of its putting a label on things making it a syndrome, but instead to see how the odd expectations of the members of a church impact the health of the pastor. I know from experience that this has been the case with me, but I wonder sometimes if it should be. I don't see myself going out of my way to be nice to people, but perhaps without realizing it I am. Either way, it along with other articles is a reminder that the health of pastors can very easily be thrown out by the very people they are charged to care for. I posted about other research in this area back in May (HERE).
