  1. This is great. Why didn’t I know about it sooner, like 2005. After 27 years of ministry, I am retiring at the end of September. But I am joining anyway. Looking forward to the conversations.

  3. How do. I, a non-blogger, submit a question for “Ask the Matriarch?” Maybe it’s that I cannot see it from my ipad, using Safari, but please help! I’ve got a question! 🙂


  4. Friends,

    We’d like to add you to our mailing list for the next Take Time For Peace global interfaith event, February 2016. Please tell us the best way to contact you.

    With kind regards,

  5. I will be entering seminary soon and I’m sure I will find a lot of comfort in this blog. Thank you and many blessings.


  6. Dear Martha,
    If that book has not been sent to the woman in the United Methodist Women in charge of the Reading List, it should be. The lessons and insights learned therein are many. It would be perfect for the Leadership Category.

    If you want more information about this, I can send it or check on the Web at and you’ll find bunches of stuff.
    Send to:

    Here’s hoping it works out for the book.

  7. Hi, Carolyn~
    Our publisher is in touch with the women who develop the Reading List. My understanding is we were too late for this year but will be under consideration for the following list. Thank you so much for your support! I think it would be great if you let someone know you recommend the book.


  8. Greetings in the name of our dear Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

    I am Nehru Naik, I am native of small and backward village NVK THANDA,
    Peddavoora Manadal, Nalagonda District, telagana India. I am
    born in a very poor family, my parents were daily wage labours. I
    belong to Schedule Tribe community which is most neglected community
    in the society.

    Voice calling me ” I NEED YOU MY SON”, I looked here and there but no
    one was there. I opened the BIBLE, God spoke to me through the
    scriptures, Nahum :1:15. According the Scripture I decided to search
    the Gospel to the unreached areas of our society. And started
    preaching the gospel in the year 1992 till now preached 24 villages of
    our surroundings after taking Bible Training in collage and
    established achurch, where saints are worshiping regularly.

    One day while mediating the God’s word, God spoken with me by the
    Scripture James 1:27 to care of orphan children. Hence, we have
    started small orphanage with 10.orphans by providing food, shelter,

    We request you to kindly pray for these children as they need of
    school books, bags & fees. We love you to invite you to come to our
    children home whenever you visit India.

    With much love &


  9. So interested to hear and read more. I am ordained in the Evangelical Covenant Church. I am a pastor who serves mostly outside organized churches. Not because that was what I wanted, but because it was incredibly hard to find placement without leaving family that needed me close by. So my ministry is varied, and many times it is in conversation with the “nones and dones” who need to be heard and find God in their story.


  10. why does feedly not work and Skewed View & Signs-Along-The-Way are no longer accessible to read posts. I know because as stinuksuk, I have been posting. I miss the old format where one could comment on another posts. Am I just behind the times?!!?


  11. Skewed View and Signs Along the Way are both available in the feed – I know because it’s the one I check each week. But you need to click through to the particular blog to comment. That isn’t built into Feedly. When you first go to Feedly, you should see the first 6 of 247 feeds, then a button you can click to open all the rest. The list is alphabetical; we hear Feedly may sometime add an option to prioritize most recently updated sites, but that feature has not been added yet. When you click on a specific post in a blogger’s feed on Feedly, at the bottom you’ll see a button, “Go to website.” That’s where you can comment. I hope this helps.

    1. Yes, you should find it at the end of each daily prayer post, but I will also share it here. “RevGalBlogPals encourages you to share our blog posts via email or social media. We do not grant permission to cut-and-paste prayers and articles without a link back. For permission to use material in paper publications, please email revgalblogpals at gmail dot com.”


  12. I am happy to have found this blog. I am a lifelong member of the UCC, a PK (preacher’s kid in case anyone doesn’t know) and ex spouse of a pastor who cheated on me with a member of our congregation. My uncle, great grandfather, and best friend’s mom were also pastors. I worked as Director of Communications at Andover Newton Theological School, where I obtained a Master of Arts in Theology in 1995. During my time there, I got to know many future pastors, professors, and alums. I am presently active in Newman Congregational Church in Rumford, Rhode Island. I’m retired from a career in public relations and hoping to start a blog (I was a creative writing major many moons ago at Brown U.) drawing upon my experiences as a PK and pastor’s wife and the unique challenges of being a member of a pastor’s family. I would also write about my struggles with mental illness (I’m diagnosed as Bipolar II) and how I have emerged from the darkness and found the tools to build a happy and fulfilling life. I haven’t been able to find anything like it – and I’m wondering if anyone here would a) know of a similar blog or b) be interested in reading one. Thanks for any feedback!


We hope you'll join the conversation!
