The A to Z of the Pastor’s Wife – Q is for Queen


Q is for Queen I heard something the other day and thought to myself, "I love this church." There's a lot of talk and coverage of the Queens’ s 90th birthday.

The A to Z of the Pastor’s Wife – P is for Perks


P is for Perks I did mention, back in H is for home, that I would talk about 'the perks of the job' in today's post (which should be yesterday's post, but never mind.) Our home is definitely a perk. But there are many others. There's a great list of perks in the book I …

L is for Late yes yes I know - this post should have gone up last Thursday. Sorry it's late. Actually, lateness is a subject I could talk about at length (if I had time). I do have a bit of trouble with the ol' time keeping. I love that I only have to walk …

The A to Z of the Pastor’s Wife – K is for Kyrie eleison


K is for Kyrie eleison Kyrie is more than just the translated word for mercy. It's a petition for mercy. The crying out, in the knowledge that you are in need of it. The most powerful sung version of it for me, comes from an unlikely place. I'm not a big fan of Sinéad O'Connor. …
