The Ideal Pastor

is always casual but never underdressed,
is warm and friendly but not too familiar,
is humorous but not funny,
calls on his members but is never out of the office,
is an expository preacher but always preaches on the family,
is profound but comprehensible,
condemns sin but is always positive,
Has a family of ordinary people who never sin,
Has two eyes, one brown and the other blue!
(Hughes, Liberating Ministry from the Success Syndrome, 186).

Interestingly, I had a tough time tracking down the same kind of thing for the ideal church member . . . hmmmm
