Pastors’ Kids are All Over

I had lunch with the Professor and her friend, who is also a minister’s kid.

“The fishbowl,” she called it, that scrutiny you live under, where your every behavior and your parents’ reaction to it is interpreted as a constant audition for whether your pastor parent is good enough for his or her job.

At the debate, there were three ministers’ kids, which seems like a high percentage, seeing as there were maybe a dozen people in the room.

I don’t have any deep thoughts, except to say that it’s a weird way to come up and always nice to meet folks who have been through it.
