Clergy People

If I confess something to you, will you promise not to tell anyone?

Most folks think clergy people-the folks with religious titles on the front of their names-have some sort of special spiritual advantage over the average person. The fact that they've been to seminary or have an advanced theological degree means they don't struggle with the temptations, problems, or desires that their next door neighbors fight. You know what? That's a false assumption.

Clergy are just people. There are not three sexes-male, female, and clergy. There are just males and females. And all of us are subject to the same struggles.

So, when you meet a clergy person, don't put him or her on a pedestal. And remember that you have the privilege of being as close to your Creator as they do.
