When we think about the things that qualify people for jobs--experienced, responsible, reliable--there's often an unspoken threat in the terms. No one need apply who is in-experienced, ir-responsible, or un-reliable. Blogger Wayne Floyd of the Alban Institute asked a bigger question recently: What would it be like if we could advertise religious job openings in our communities without the dis-qualifications looming so large, and instead could say just what it is that we really need the most? His post (http://albanroundtable.org/?p=928#comments) drew a slew of interesting comments. Wayne and some of those who commented join us today to talk about what it really takes to do the job of ministry.
