It is that time of year again. The request came out last week for all clergy of the District to contribute towards a gift for our District Superintendent.
I don’t participate in this.
I could; easily. The requested amount, $15 each, is nothing for me. On the other hand, we have a lot of clergy making far less than I, many with more family and other expenses.
On the other end of the collection, our DS makes more than $100,000 a year.
Dollars aside, I don’t think it is appropriate to take collections for superiors.
