In the ministry, monotony and mediocrity often mesh like teeth in gears. One spawns the other, leaving us yawning, bored, and adrift. In referring to monotony, I do not have in mind a lack of activity as much as a lack of purpose.
Even as pastors, we can be busy yet bored, involved yet indifferent. Ministry can become . . .
- Tediously repetitious
In a word, blah.
