I am always uncomfortable doing this type of thing but it is necessary to be able to offer my services at no charge. My desire is to see my 15 years of work making your life as a minister easier and more joyful. I recognize that to those of us who hold to our integrity, these types of disclaimers are unnecessary. They, however, do not bother me because I know they are necessary in order to clearly state the boundaries of the resource offered and I have no issue in working within set parameters. It's a matter of integrity. Most of us place a high value on our integrity as Christians and ministers. Yet because there are those among us who do not yet understand the importance of holding to the strict standard of ethics, I must state clearly the boundaries of the services offered.
