A FaithFULL Ministry Marriage

I will never forget my introduction to one of the ladies from the first church in which we served as a young married couple. I was doing my pastor’s wife thing, chatting with people during the coffee time in between the service and Sunday school. I hadn’t met this lady yet and because she was a tall, dark, striking woman—very unlike all the other very light-skinned people in the congregation—I was very curious to meet her.

I began by introducing myself. “Hi, I’m Wendy; Mark, the pastor’s wife”, as if she didn’t already know that considering we were the only new ones in the small-town church. Though I stated the obvious to her she grinned, revealing bright white teeth in a gorgeous and open smile. Right away I felt at ease until she responded to my introduction not by offering her first name but by saying, “Oh…you’re the one whose job it is to seduce the pastor!”
