Suffering servant wanted.
Harvard Divinity School's answer to The Onion is The Skeptic. Here's an "upcoming summer field education placement" notice from the May issue:
Ninth Church of God in Heaven, Swampscott, MA
Ninth Church is seeking an intern for the year 2004-5. Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to: organizing and working with youth group; lesson planning and implementation for Sunday School and Adult Education; scheduling or worship services; music leader and piano player for all services (proficiency with guitar, flute and harmonica also encouraged); weekly preaching; light administrative duties, including phone call management, copying, coffee-maker supervision, janitorial 'assisting,' daily opening and locking up of worship space and office. Additional options for Arts of Ministry may include responsibility for the pastor's laundry and shining his shoes. There is no stipend, travel subsidy or supervision for this field site.
Sometimes satire comes dangerously close to the truth.
