    Hearing all this makes me more interested than I already was to read Bellanok!

    This reminds me of a song I like which I’ve been hearing a lot on the radio. “Save my Life” by Sidewalk Prophets.

    I’m the pastor at your church
    For all these years you’ve listened to my words
    You think I know all the answers

    But I’ve got doubts and questions too
    Behind this smile, I’m really just like you
    Afraid and tired and insecure

    If you look me right in the eye
    Would you see the real me inside
    Would you take the time to

    Tell me what I need to hear
    Tell me that I’m not forgotten
    Show me there’s a God
    Who can be more than all I’ve ever wanted

    ‘Cause right now I need a little hope
    I need to know that I’m not alone
    Maybe God is calling you tonight
    To tell me something that might save my life

    I don’t usually like fantasy, but now I want to read this book because my husband happens to be a military chaplain and former pastor.

    I actually prefer bookish pastors. They tend to give more interesting sermons, and the more bro-ish type of pastor tends to be not as funny as they think they are.

    • My pastors are just bro-ish (that’s a great term, Notleia) to be real (without forcing the Be Real thing in millennial-overthought fashion) but also quite bookish. This has been the case in the last few churches in which I’ve been blessed to be a member.

What do you think?
