here thats hard to get , the Baptists Methodists Presbyterian and a few others all joined up to become the "uniting Church of Australia" nowdays ...appeasement , apologism and christlam reigns ... excuses for all, gay weddings ok , lady ministers , gay lady ministers.
and this one
we must be more accepting of our poor Islamic Brothers, they too believe in Jesus
Good Lord !! Give me Strength!!!!!
Terry, a fair days pay for a fair days work ,
the old minister , i had when a boy , i liked how he paid himself , cause like kids do , i asked..
he figured sunday was a full working day so he paid himself a days wages for that , and from there it was based on how much he did for the community or his flock , a visit to a elderly parishioner was a 1/6th of a days wage i remember ( he had a bloody big parish though , about the size of New York state )
he figured he was getting about half what a working man was getting but that just meant he had to do more ..
seemed fair enough to me ..
by the time i was in the Army, Coonabarabran had grown and he had a full church .. guess he was makin wages ..
good bloke eh , folks miss him , town does ..
