4 Things You’ve Got to See

Here are 4 things I’m glad I saw this weekend. You may want to check them out…

  • Former minister, Dan Bouchelle writes a piece called “Why are there so many angry minister’s wives?” The post is excellent, the comments are just as good. He’s obviously touched on a “hot” topic. I’m not sure how Lea feels about all of this, but I’m going to get her to read the article and then ask her.
  • Jull Slatery has an excellent little article called, “Understanding your husband’s sexuality.” She states, “According to a poll of 150 Christian married men, 83 percent stated that they don’t believe that women understand a man’s sex drive.” This would be a great article to read and discuss with your spouse.
  • “Society’s Invisible People” is a short, but powerful little article about the dignity and disconnect of the homeless. It’s a very good read with a challenging conclusion.
  • I have never received roses as a gift, and I’m not sure I’d want to, BUT if I did, these would be the roses I’d want. YUM!

This week I have a handful of goodies lined up. We had an old-fashioned church potluck yesterday. You won’t BELIEVE the conversation that came up. Tomorrow we’ll talk about “The 10 Commandments of Church Potlucks.”  Wednesday I’ll post an incredible story that took place at the dump in Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

    I’ll take a dozen bacon roses please . . .

    i enjoyed the article on angry preacher’s wives. I need to look around, but are there articles on why so many preacher’s daughters seem to be angry (critical) to (of) the church as adults?

    You’re welcome for the roses! LOL You were the first one I thought of when I saw that. Of course, there were at least 121 others in quick succession.

    I liked Dan’s article, as well. Gonna check out the others now.

    Okay, so its taken all day (well most of it) to get through the first article and I will be on my knees asking for forgiveness soon. I am not one (I think) of the people described in the post and comments, but I’m far from perfect. I thank Dan for his post. Its opened my eyes. (I couldn’t post on Dan’s blog.) Sometimes its hard to walk a mile in anothers shoes.

      Julie … thanks for your heart, your openness and your honesty. I had a chance to ask Lea what she thought of the article … she said she understands how these ladies feel, but said she’s never been treated that way. The two places we’ve ministered have both been very loving and supportive.

    Loved the article on the Invisible People…

    I’ve been doing it wrong Trey. Life, all of it. But I’m learning slowly. Poor God for having to put up with me. I want to do so much reach out so much and I get ticked when things don’t go the way I think they should, but I’m seeing that I need to do His will in His time, His way. Its hard praying and waiting. Pray with me please for God’s direction, His will, His desire, where He wants me and what He wants me doing for His kingdom.

  6. Steve Gauntt says:

    Do the church potluck rules apply to Wednesday night meals as well? If so, I might need them in the next few hours – I hate to think that I might be breaking all the rules without even knowing it.
    Also – I’m working on a Potluck Pal contraption (especially handy for preachers…in which case it could be called “Preacher Pal” or “Pastor Pal”) that you might be interested in. It is essentially a harness that will hold a styrofoam plate in front of you which frees up your hands and allows you to walk around and talk to people at potlucks without missing out on the eating aspect of it. The big holdup is what to do with drink – I just don’t think the helmet drink dispenser is the right way to go with church potlucks.

    The angry preacher’s wife article makes some good points. As a preacher’s wife there is always the added pressure of knowing that we live off church donations. One member often questioned whether we were spending money wisely, sometimes after looking at our trash! Yes, if you live in a preacher’s house your trash can is on church property. Talk about living in a fish bowl!

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
