al pastor Al pastor meat is, apparently, marinated before cooking. i just ate some delicious carnitas al pastor which the kind lady in the lunch wagon apologized for be…cause she didn't have "regular carnitas, only carnitas al pastor". They are sometimes served with pineapple on top.
A metrical romance is a poem that tells a story that ends happily, whether love is involved or not. For more information, see the Related Link.
Pastoralism is the practice of herding as the primary economic activity of a society.
A pastor does many, many things; largely depending on the congregation's size and whether or not there are more than one pastor. If the church is large and there is multiple p…astor then they are specialized into separate fields, but in an one pastor congregation then he/she does most (if not all) of the following. The first and most obvious is preaching Sunday morning, but this is not as simple as getting in front of a crowd and rambling for 20 minutes. Hours of preparation and prayer go into even the simplest sermon, even a "recycled" sermon-one that the pastor has done years ago but still has the outline, takes considerable work to revise and prepare with. But his/her job isn't over Sunday evening after the services are over. Throughout the week he/she holds positions in most (if not all) councils or boards that the church offers and it is his/her responsibilty to make as many as possible to ensure everything is running smoothly. There is outreach that needs to be done, and that can look like a hundred different things but most common is visitation of the sick, elderly, or incarcerated, and the means spending a good amount of time with each individual. Beyond visitation he/she may be actively involved in other means of outreach including (but not limited to) street evangelism, school outreachs, homeless shelter work, etc. These outreaches depend largely on the area that the pastor preaches to. Back in the church proper, when he/she isn't chairing a comittee, working on a sermon, preaching/teaching, he/she is busy with counciling. Numerous issues come past a pastor's desk and congregates will bring a wide range of issues before a pastor to handle, be in marriage issues, personal problems, spiritual questions, etc. etc. etc. He/She also will be involved in, if not directly leading marriage counciling. That brings me into the next aspect of being a pastor, "the marrying them and burying them" aspect. In other words, involvement and leading of numerous special occasions in a person's life, (in many cases, conversion), baptism, weddings, and burials. Some churches have different milestones like these and differ widely from church to church. These are bittersweet moments for a pastor, especially when he/she is personally invested in the individual(s) that the ceremony is being held for. These are your standard "9-5" job qualities, things that a pastor knows about atleast a few days in advance and can prepare for. But a pastor's job is far from 9-5. One of the most physically demanding, and spiritually taxing aspects is those moments that you can't be prepared for. That midnight phone call to the hospital because Mr. and Mrs. Smith's 21 year old son is in critical condition because of a drunk driver. A pastor may be there for hours giving comfort and aid to the family and victim. He/She may not have gone to bed yet, and in some cases it'll be Saturday night/Sunday morning and 2-3 sermons in the morning. It is in those moments that they relay entirely on God to pull them through. Being a pastor is far from an easy job, he/she is continously being thrown into situations that most would want to avoid, tragic accidents, violent and malicious agruements, and pressed with questions that noone can really answer, these normally start "Why would God..." They're job are 24-7-365, and they are part teacher, part psychologist, part CEO, part finicial manager, part therapist, part orator, part embassador, and part solider.
A metrical romance is a poem that tells a story that ends happily, whether love is involved or not. The Norman first brought this Metrical Romans into England. And it became… so popular, so it expressed the romantic spirit of the time, that is speedily overshadowed all other forms of literary expression.
The spiritual "shepherd" (leader, mentor, servant) of a Christian church.
A Pastoral poem is one in which country characters, usually shepherds, discuss the big questions about life and love. The notion that simple rural folk have a profound underst…anding of things comes from idillic literature of ancient Greece and Rome.
In the strict canonical sense, a "pastor" is the residential bishop. However, it is generally used in reference to the priest charged with the care of souls of a Catholi…c parish.
The word "pastors" is only in the New Testament once. The word "pastor" in its singular use is never used. No one person in the New Testament is called a pastor. This term and… its use by many Christian people is totally misunderstood and misused. The terms "elder, teacher, overseer, bishop, presbytery, shepherd, and pastor" all mean the exact same. Never was there a paid or salaried pastor in the New Testament. No one elder ever stood out above the others. They functioned as a team.
A bi-vocational pastor is an ordained minister who follows the model of the Apostle Paul (Acts 20:34) by offering ministry without expectation of remuneration, instead supplyi…ng his/her own financial needs via a paying job or business.
Romance--not necessarily because it is "romantic," but because it's an adventure where the hero and heroine get what they want. In Terminator II, the Terminator, like the Ti…n Man in The Wizard of Oz, wants a human heart. He gets it as he makes his thumbs-up sacrifice of his life for the boy. And the boy wants to survive with his mom. That happens, too. These are Romances. Romance is one of the two forms of literature that project what human's desire. Comedy. In a Comedy the hero or heroine gets what each wants, but not quite the way or even in the terms that either expects it, so that can't be its defining aspect.There are always temporary obstacles, but Comedy always ends in a reconciliation. We may laugh, but we don't have to. Comedy is the story of reconciliations, of the hero or heroine reconciled with family or society. Tragedies are the exact opposite of comedies in that they deal with disintegration rather than reintegration. There aren't so many tragedies regularly on TV, because who would want to watch a society or family disintegrate night after night, again and again. In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo sees Juliet lying on her grave and he thinks she's dead, so he kills himself. Juliet wakes up--she's only been drugged--and sees Romeo dead, so she kills herself. They almosthad each other, what they most wanted. Some kind of fate or bad luck had them wake at different times; they were "star-crossed," tragic figures. Othello, Oedipus, The Godfatherhave themes that are similar in this regard: in each, the main character reaches for something worthwhile and that destroys him. Tragedy.
