Be aware of the pastor who treats you as a commodity,
whose evangelism becomes an excuse for a lack of empathy.
Such men will charm you with their honesty,
but don’t be fooled, they are not as complex as they appear to be.
Your heart is currency for bums on seats and a chink in their book sales,
your pain is invisible so don’t be enamoured by the promise of family.
Shake the dust of your feet and run,
Do not waste time on false community.
