Expectations of newly-ordained clergy are pinpointed, and the place of thanksgiving and of the evangelical counsels in ministry is stressed.

In these addresses, the expectations – true and false – of newly-ordained clergy are identified. Stressing the need for constant thanksgiving as the bedrock of a pastor’s life, the author examines the role of the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity and obedience, in providing practical and spiritual support to ministry.
