Staff Disloyalty

I'm reviewing the book 27 Tough Questions Pastors Ask by Dick Hardy. For those of you that are in church work or considering work, you should buy this book. It is filled with practical insights from a pastoral perspective. Here are some of my favorite quotes from chapter 17 (yes, I skipped a few more chapters).

By definition, loyalty is the quality of being faithful to those persons or ideals that one is under obligation to defend or support. (116)

Nip it now! It is absolutely critical that, whenever you hear of disloyalty, you nip it in the bud. Problems like this don't just go away. Deal with it right now! (119)
