Guaranteed appointments

The problem is beyond appointments. We need to do a better job of screening and being honest with those who feel called. Remember the story of the man who was plowing and saw cloud formations GPC. He interpreted that as Go Preach Christ. After his first sermon a wise parishoner said he thought GPC meant Go Plant Corn.
And let's face it, some simply wear out and need the nurture, support and guidance to find her/his other calling.
Finally, we need SPRCs and D.S.s who have the courage, wisdom, and strength to help such persons.
