Thanks to those who voted in our first poll, asking readers their role in relation to the church. We wanted to get an idea of who is dropping by SpouseConnect, and--as we suspected--most readers are women married to male pastors. A few are men married to female pastors, and just a couple visitors have been the pastors themselves or curious layfolk.
68% of respondents are pastors' wives
21% are pastors
5% are pastor's husbands
5% are laypersons
(yes, that totals 99%--there are fractions in there somewhere!)
Since we're well into Advent now, tell us: What sorts of gatherings and greetings are you participating in with your congregation? Do you host a party? "Make the rounds" to a bunch of Sunday school or small group parties? Send Christmas cards? You can select as many options as apply!
Also, if you have found a creative way to celebrate with your church members at Christmas or to protect your family-time during the holidays, leave a comment and tell us all about it!
