Great Article on Church Bureaucracy

Hat tip to Fr David ChislettThe Church Bureaucracies Have to Go – David Mills

The article really concerns the Church of England, but the same bane is seen in all churches. I thank God that I belong to a Church with the bare minimum of what is needed to run the Diocese in the way of finance, “who does what” and giving the clergy a characteristic of professionalism. There needs to be some organisation and paperwork, but we try to make it serve the essential mission of the Church which is prayer and the pastoral ministry to souls.

The article needs to be read, and this, not liturgy or doctrine, is where the Church needs a thorough reform. It is good to see the subject brought up and the institutional bullshit challenged.
