Opinion Central Poll 2007.34: Final Results

Just saw an ad for the military chaplaincy where one of the benefits was 30 days paid vacation.

My conference by-laws suggest 4 weeks should be the standard vacation for pastors.

Why is it that we pastors only take 2 weeks (at best) a year?

Our conference gives us four weeks vacation and I have taken every week since I have been in the ministry. In addition, I take my two weeks study leave each year.

There is no excuse for pastors not to make time for vacation and renewal. To use busyness as an excuse is just that-- an excuse.

Thanks for your thoughts!
