Ministers = McDonald's Managers?

PMPilgrim posts an interesting quote:

What would happen if McDonald’s ran its franchises like the average local church? A skilful but frazzled manager would be seen throughout the day taking orders, making change, salting the French fries, and assembling Big Macs- all while six other employees behind the counter stood off to one side, applauding politely and gushing, “I’m so impressed with the way you spread the special sauce. I could never do that. And the deft way you put those ketchup packets in the bag. You’ve had training. You’ve been to hamburger seminary.”
Ouch.

It's from the book The Disciple-Making Church: From Dry Bones to Spiritual Vitality by Glenn McDonald.

Hmmm. Something to think about.
