to be nearer heaven, (the pastor) must feel the burden of earth

"Each Tsiddik has a special derekh, a special way of dealing with God and the Hassidim, and this derekh is expressed in prayers, melodies, teaching, everyday behavior...yet, for all his powers, a Tsiddik cannot function be nearer heaven, he must feel the burden of earth, and the earthly element is in the daily life, the tsores and troubles of the Hassidim."
-From :"Life is With People: The Culture of the Shetl"


"Imagine if being a Christian were about life?"
