I read with interest my fellow BOLD writer Carmen Fletcher’s “Confessions of a Preacher Kid: Chelsea Stanton”. I can relate. Me, too.
I actually come from a long ministerial line; my great-grandfather, Clarence, grandfather, Joseph, and grandmother, Bernice, all did pulpit time. In addition, my dad, stepmom, an uncle and a couple of cousins are carrying on the family legacy, and my brother most recently felt the call.
I, on the other hand, have no intention of donning any robe other than for the bath.
