  1. Reading Between the Lines: The Problem of Unwritten Expectations

    Winter 1990 — Pages 17-24

    This article is an investigation into the problem of unwritten expectations for those on a church staff. It considers the scope of the problem, the sources of the expectations, and concludes with nine ideas which one can implement in order to better cope with the difficulty presented. It is asserted that there are two sources for unwritten expectations: those which come from other people, and those which are standards set up by the person himself. It is also suggested that there are viable steps which can be taken to reduce the number of unwritten expectations in any church staff position, as well as minimize the effects of those unwritten expectations which inevitably remain.
