Jonathan Edwards, early American minister
In my early days of teaching in Texas, a personable young teacher/coach announced, via school e-mail, that he saw his newly acquired position as an opportunity to minister to not only students, but fellow teachers. He essentially asked me, and everyone else, to subscribe to his ministry. I politely replied that I would be taking care of my spiritual journey without his help, thank you. I later learned our principal, a smart and decent fellow, took him aside and explained he could be a teacher or a minister, but not both on school time, and if he chose the latter, he would be seeking a new “opportunity” elsewhere.
