A majority of pastors and their families grapple with time pressures, intimacy issues and general satisfaction. The good news is that this problem is a solvable one. Pastoral families can take their lives back and put them in order if they choose to do so. And congregations can help. The more you understand what it is really like to live in a pastor's home, the more supportive you will be of everyone in your pastor's family. See it from their perspective.
The editors of Leadership journal assembled four people with pastoral family experience to talk about their childhoods in the "fishbowl" of public scrutiny and the experiences they encountered with their own children. This booklet contains excerpts from that conversation.
