Prof. Scott Thumma was quoted in this Danbury News Times article Part Time in the Pulpit. The article talks about the trend toward part-time pastors as churches see their congregations shrink. “For a long time, the laity has come to church as a spectator in an organization run by the clergy, because almost everyone has grown up being serviced by full-time clergy,” Prof. Thumma said. “The pastoral care of friends is their responsibility, not the pastor’s, but since they haven’t had to do it, it is a significant shift for them.”
