One of the joys in my life is being a “Matriarch” AKA “Mentor of Clergywomen Everywhere.”
Over at RevGalBlogPals, I and a number of other matriarchs respond to a classic question — what to do when parishioners make snide comments in the presence of others?
Unfortunately, it is a very common scenario for women in ministry. And what a shame! I know for a fact that clergywomen are just doing their best at a very hard job which is uniquely undervalued.

If you’ve ever been the person making the snide comment, I would love to hear about that experience too! What were you thinking?
Please pass along this resource to any women pastors you know. She probably would benefit from belonging to RevGals!
