OK, bivocational ministries — where someone has a pastorate and a day job — are a good answer in a number of situations, if for no other reason than health insurance can be hard to come by, or there is no possibility of yoking two or more small, part-time churches. It is worth talking about since the Universalists historically all but banned it (though ministers could own businesses, it seemed) and Unitarian Universalist fellowship rules don’t exactly encourage it.
So a question: what are some of the things ministers usually do, or are trained for in an M.Div. program, that apply in the secular workplace? Think of it as collective resume building. (Chutney: I feel, or rather have felt, your pain.)
