A View from the Parsonage
The story begins when I was old enough to remember being a child in theParsonage. All PK's will identify we are the first to get to church, last to leave, and there at least 3 times a week (BTU) Baptist Training Union, Prayer Service/Bible Study, and Sunday Worship ...if this has been your experience.....yep, you'redefinitely a pastor's kid.Foremost and above all I am a (PK) a preacher's kid. I am the fourth of six children.This book is mostly about my adolescent years. As I have written the clinician inme came gushing forth. I did not want to only complain. Yet I want to share somesupporting data which is public information. Too many clergy families are beingdevastated by this thing called ministry. If the truth be told many of our pastors arein affairs outside of their marriage. The other woman is the Bride of Christ. We spendso much time with her we neglect our wives and family. I speak not from an abstractperspective. I have been up close and personal in this thing called ministry.Seton Hall UniversityNewark College of Engineerig (NJIT)Jesus the Liberator Seminary
