A friend of mine was a Lutheran pastor in an urban parish.

One day, she was alone in the church building. A drug addict broke in, tied her up, robbed her, and raped her.

Naturally, this was a terrible trauma for her. A number of her parishioners tried to comfort her by saying "God has sent you this experience in order to deepen you."

Her response was an emphatic "I'd rather be shallow."

She resigned her pulpit.
