"What are you willing to be fired over"

What are you willing to be fired over?

I've never really been in a situation where "firing" the pastor even seems to be an option, unless it was through church discipline. I suppose it happens more with a congregational model of government than in an elder-led model? 

In any case, a good reminder that not every hill is one to die on, and there are many issues that require patient instruction. Decisions I have to study for some time before I understand should require me to be many times more patient in teaching the congregation. And yet, some issues are indeed "fireable" issues. Doesn't matter who agrees or not--sometimes we have to do it regardless of the consequences, because we fear the Lord.
