New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Have we become Protestant monks with church programs as our monastic orders? Is it so that the work we do on evangelism calls or serving on church boards or committees or committing ourselves to some program that calls us to leave our spouse or children to do some service, are often conceived of as the proper sacred work for Christians to do?  All else is secular, worldly and may, in the famous words of one, "serve only to pay the bills."  -- Dr. Kenneth Korby, The Pastoral Office and the Priesthood of Believers, Lord Jesus Christ, Will You Not Stay? p. 341.
