I’m right in the middle of Mad Church Disease by Anne Jackson. I’ll be writing a review next week as I should finish it in the next few days. It’s good stuff. However, I had to post a few things I read the other night.

The average pastor rates their relationship with their spouse at a 4.5 out of 5. They typically rate their family at a 4. Although they give their own families high marks, when they rate the health of other pastor’s families, they average 3.2. The study conducted shows that ministers typically have an overly optimistic view of their own family as compared to the families of others.

Those most satisfied with their prayer life spent almost an hour in prayer per day; those who are least satisfied with their prayer life average 21 minutes per day.

This is good stuff. I’m tweaking my 2010 goals/objectives as I’m reading this book.
