    Guilt – one of many voices

    The rejection of guilt-based social change can be interpreted as weakness. Guilt-based social change workers tend not to stay around very long unless they are made the center of attention which is not healthy for them or for the work.

    The failed princess

    Once upon a time, in the wealthiest land in the whole wide world, there lived a beautiful girl who dreamed of growing up to be a princess, and/or a ballerina, and/or a missionary.

  • The Pastor’s Wife

    Jesus was a fatty

    Two months after I married my pastor husband, I did the appropriate pastor-wife thing and quit my full-time job. I had to find something to do. I did what any good pastor’s wife would do, I found a Tuesday morning ladies’ Bible study. A Bible study not affiliated with the church where my husband preaches.
