getting started

Hello to all and hope this finds you and yours well and good. I thought I would start this blog site out with a few questions just to get us going. How long have you been a clergy family? How many kids, if any do you have? What part of the country are you in? How have the recent "issues" in the church effected your church and your family? What do you do for outside church activities? How do you avoid the "stigma" attached to clergy and spouses, i.e. the pedistal effect?
look forward to hearing from all of you. and happy blogging.

clergy spouse vent/talk page

Not sure how to start this blog, but thought I would attempt to have one where clergy spouse could talk, vent, shout, pray, and just plain be themselves. I h ave only been a spouse for a few short years of a clergy, but I have certainly had some ups and downs along the way. We have been married for over 20 years and obviously this is a 2nd carreer for him. We love it. We love our church. We love where we live. Yet there are some things that only a clergy spouse can relate to.
Please join the discussion and maybe we can find a support group of sorts right here on the net.
God Bless and talk/type with you soon.
