A friend who is a priest sent me recently the link to a very interesting 9and intriguing) article written by an Orthodox priest about various models for priesthood.
I found that these transcend the Orthodox boundaries and might be useful for self-analysis of clerics of all denominations.
Here are the six models described with unusual sharpness and candid spirit by Fr. Aris Metrakos:
1. The Priest as Shaman
2. The Priest as Cruise Director
3. The Priest as CEO
4. The Priest as Museum Curator
5. The Priest as Chaplain
6. The Mission Priest
