  • Catholic Priest Research Paper

    Tale of Two Leaders The striking differences between a Catholic priest and a Christian pastor are nearly too numerous to count. Not only in the services they conduct, but their orientation into their field and the way they are taught to interact. The reality of the situation is the contrasts exist only to highlight to comparisons. Between Ronald Cobb, the Christion pastor in Horton Kansas, and Benjamin Tremmel, the Catholic priest of the Good Intent Parish, there exist some of the most uncommon similarities one might find between such different holy men. Amongst the obvious differences between a pastor and a priest, there are unique comparisons to be drawn from Father Benjamin Tremmel and Pastor Ronald Cobb, including their love for the community, their passion for the communion, and their balanced approach to preaching. To begin with, an examination of the importance communion plays in the opinions of Father Ben and Pastor Cobb would reveal they share a very similar view on the role of communion in the church. Unequivocally, communion is of the utmost importance in a Sunday service, but not all leaders of the Church…

  • The Babylonian Captivity Of The Church

    A priest may choose to forgo marriage in order to better devote themselves to their work; however, priests should not be forced away from marriage. It is simply denying a part of human nature to require priests to remain celibate and to avoid marriage altogether. As I write, “… since God has not bound them, no one else ought to bind them or can bind them, even if he were an angel from heaven, let alone a pope.” That ministry established by God should be granted the freedom of marriage. It is…

  • Church Observation

    Usually a priest will lead the service but this was a special occasion because the bishop came. The bishop and the priest split the sections, since he was there. They read mostly from their holy liturgy book and the service was filled with the congregations responses to the priest’s and bishop’s readings from it. The interesting part was that they did not use just one language during the service, they used three; English, Arabic, and Coptic. As they read from the book, they would read it out…

  • The Importance Of The Pastoral Ministry

    If I wrote this paper 20 years ago while I was attending North Central Bible College, my thoughts on what I believed was the personal call on my life and of my plans for ministry after college would have created an essay that is significantly different than what I am writing here. My interpretation of a calling was probably like most of the students that attended NCBC, that it is a divine mission placed on your life, meaning that your life is dedicated to the furthering of the Gospel through…

  • Virtues Of The Ordained Life By Willimon Analysis

    Introduction William Willimon states in Calling and Character: Virtues of the Ordained Life: “this character, the cross, indelibly determines our character” (2000, p. 35). He connects how both the calling of the ordained and her/his character connect. Willimon addresses several things that I personally found beneficial as someone who is going into Christian Ministry. For example, he clearly addresses the need for unity between the professional and private life of a pastor. His goal is to inform…
