Typically, a ministers life is a curious mixture of pain and deep joy- of public performance and private agony- of blessed assurance and a hell of doubt. The personal is never really separated from the public nor the public from the personal.MoreTypically, a ministers life is a curious mixture of pain and deep joy- of public performance and private agony- of blessed assurance and a hell of doubt. The personal is never really separated from the public nor the public from the personal.

Being female adds extra thorns to an already complex and even mystifying profession. I have written an account of my life as a United Methodist minister. It is a very personal story of both the professional and everyday family life.As a minister, not only am I not able to walk on water, but the actuality is much more like slogging through an East Texas stock tank.

Instead of confidence, I feel perplexity and even aggravation. In the morning I will stand in a packed chapel with an elusive strength dredged up from God knows where. But tonight, I have a worn-out Smith-Corona portable typewriter and my sisters Bible from which to wrestle a badly needed message.

Tomorrow, I will be the shaman who conducts a grief stricken family through the loss of a beloved daughter.Making a life in this profession together with raising daughters and relating to parishioners is crazy-making with wonderful and even transcendent moments.
