Why be ordained?

"Granted all the weaknesses of the church and the limitations of the ministry as a profession, where can one invest one's life where it can be made more effective in as many directions?

"Here is a task that requires the knowledge of a social scientist and the insight and imagination of a poet, the executive talents of a business leader and the mental discipline of a philospher."

Reinhold Niebuhr
It's a great life - hard work but very rewarding.
