Since we live in a world that doesn’t view pastoral ministry as a high calling, it is probably no surprise that many do not view pastor’s wives as having a high calling either (including some pastor’s wives!).

I suppose there are many reasons why this is the case.  Some people have an image in their head of what a pastor’s wife looks like (or should look like) and they simply don’t want that for themselves.  Perhaps others think being a pastor’s wife means certain things it doesn’t necessarily mean.  And others are probably wary of a life where you are often scrutinized, watched, and maybe even critiqued.

For all these reasons, I was pleased to give a talk on “The Importance of Being a Pastor’s Wife” to the gathering of women at last week’s PCA General Assembly in Greensboro, NC.  It was a packed house so apparently there are many folks interested in that subject!
