Should I make that list on my LJ? It could get interesting, as a lot of the clergy I know are on LJ. :)

No, not a good idea. :)
Yes, I've already mentioned you as "clergy" in my journals trying to figure out this whole thing. You're very much clergy, in my eyes. As is m3ch
As for what I find more appealing of the four you've talked about, I'd say 1 and 2 are the most important, in that order.
But one does not need clergy "status" for either of those things. One recent entry I made in my journal is all about the fact that one does not need clergy to deal with the gods, or to worship them right.
So part of what I'm struggling with is that feeling: "You know, I don't need that validation."
I don't think I'm doing this for me. I don't know who I'm doing it for, but it appears that I'm doing it more for my Grove and community. At least, that's what I'm interested in doing it for.
