stuff to talk about...

>> January 19, 2009

So girls, our goal here at CLUTCH is to keep talking about the stuff that's relevant. Things that are important to you. Real issues.

We've got the next few months of posts lined up, but we'd like your input too! And we also wanna make sure we're on the right track to meeting your needs.

So here's an open thread for you. Will you please ponder for a second or two about what topics you'd like to see us address on CLUTCH? You can suggest anything - no topic is off-limits.

  • It might be something you' d like to hear about from a PH on "he says"...
  • Or something tough, to tackle during PMS week...
  • Or a really splendid giveaway idea...
  • Or a book we should review for all the other PWs...
  • Or a spiritual topic you're wrestling with...
  • Or a fabulous PW we should interview...
  • Or a question you'd like us to ask, so you can hear everyone else's answers and feedback.
Whatever you're thinking, we can't wait to hear it. Don't be shy!

I have been dating a pastor for a year and a half. Does anyone have anything they wished they would have known before going in?


CLUTCH January 19, 2009 at 11:50 AM  

Great question Lauren! We'll do a full blog post on that to help get you some answers!

For this post here, we want to collect a whole list of the kind of questions you're asking right here, so keep 'em coming chicks!

(And let's stick to asking the questions on this one, not answering them, so we can isolate each theme and blog it properly to give each of your questions the full treatment!)

Two questions to discuss:
1)What to do when you don't feel called to the ministry?

2) How to support him when he doesn't even know where God is leading?

For a "he says": I'd like to ask about pastors being tempted to have inappropriate relationships with female congregation members. How common is that? Ever known anyone facing the problem? How do you deal with it? How should a wife deal with it?

How to best be a support to your husband?

What is your role as a pastor's wife...we are in the process of planting a church and sometimes I don't know where I'm supposed to be and what I'm suppose to be doing. Just wondering what is a way to be at your maximum for your church and husband and home too?

I'm also thrilled to have discovered this blog. I'm not a PW yet, but will likely be one in the next year or two when my husband finishes his Seminary degree. I'm totally with Lauren-- what do you know now that you wish you had known about being a PW? Maybe a top ten (or 20, or 50!) list of things? :)

i needing some help in the area of not getting along with the other pastor wives on staff - their dedication or lack of for the church & their pastor really is disturbing, upsetting & just makes me full of anger sometimes. help!

A countdown of the strangest things members ask you. Or misconceptions of the pastoral family.

My husband recently received his 4th church to pastor. I'm a bit overwhelmed! It kinds feels like "run, run, run." Right now, I don't feel like I really belong to any one of the 4 churches. When we moved to this district there were only two churches my husband pastored and we spent one worship day completely with one church and the next worship day with the 2nd church. Any tips on how to cope, how to take time off? Thanks.

Wow! Thought I'd never figure out how to add a post to this site. I am a new user, just wanting to get acquainted. My most recent challenge is a personal one. My father is facing some critical health dilemmas and it looks as if, no matter what choices he makes the outcomes may not be that great. So, I covet your prayers. We face a lot of challenges in our current church district, but feel certain that God is with us. Looking forward to hearing from the group and keeping in touch from time to time. Right now I just want to know that I have made a connection with someone, somewhere, so that, if I need to I can count on being able to connect with someone later.
