Welcome to the preview of the book, A Matter of Wife & Death, co-authored by Ginger Kolbaba. I hope you enjoy reading it each day and look forward to any comments or questions you may have. -- Christy Scannell
Hi, Wendy. Kitty is a microcosm of the many "real great Christian" comments Ginger and I have heard over the years. Ginger is a PK so she especially was privy to some pretty awful assessments of her dad's preaching, her mom's clothes, their home, etc. It truly is amazing the thoughtless things people will say -- even Christians! But we hope Kitty is an influence to help people think twice before they offer their "opinions" to their pastor's family or each other.
Christy, It is sad how some people expect perfection in others. Many people are afraid of pastors, their wives, and pk's because they feel they will be judged. I've felt that before. I've also been included in a decompression time debriefing where everyone was allowed to vent. It was comforting and reassuring to me to hear the chaplains venting as freely as the rest of us. Take Care, Wendy
Wendy, you were fortunate to find a safe haven to air your feelings. Many of the PWs I've heard from say they cannot trust anyone, even other PWs. That can be very isolating, I'm sure. Just another reason why we church members need to be sensitive to our PWs and their families.
