    Why do pastors, who know and teach the importance of relationships in church, have such problems living it out?

    For all the frustrations of commuting, trivia, colleagues and bureaucracy, we still all know that deep down it is a good thing to have a reason to get out of bed and get to work. We are made by God for good work, and finding it is a deep need.
