What's a pastor to do?

I'm reading a challenging book by a guy named Eugene Peterson - of The Message paraphrase fame. He has some strong opinions on where a pastor should be spending most of his time.

Before I spill his opinions, what's your opinion?

I think a pastor should be blameless as a person, a faithful husband, and dedicated father. (See Titus 1) As far as pastoral duties(your 4th priority), "encourage others with sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it" (also Titus) which would require quite a bit of study and meditation to ensure "sound" doctrine.

The last post was not Justin, it was Justin's 2nd priority...his wife, Suzanne.

For the record, Justin does a fantastic job keeping his priorities in check... (I know that has nothing to do with the original post, but I thought I should clarify that everyone on the home front is very happy.)
