The Name Game

Today a large group of organized women descended upon our humble church. I brought my son (8 months) to the opening of their gathering admittedly as a shield and an excuse to leave again. I am guessing the majority of these women are not exactly computer literate and my guess would be maybe 2 of them know what a blog is but I found the following interchange pretty interesting. 'Them' is one of them as they surrounded me and The Boy.

Them: Oh, she is the Reverend Mother.
Me: Oh no, that is not me.
Them: No. Reverend Mommy.
Me: No, I'm not her.
Them: How about Preacher Mom.
Me: I don't think so.

If they'd mentioned Songbird I would have really been confused!


  1. Hee hee! I love it!

    Sometimes I will share some aspect of balancing motherhood and ministry and say something like, "That's just part of life as a reverendmother." I always want to wink but there's nobody to wink at.
