The Black Church Title For The Senior Pastor Wife Will Never Die!
Reader, since "First Lady" is not a Biblical concept, but a created title that distinguish the pastor's wife from other women in the church, some folks are somewhat offended by this. Growing up in the constructs of the black church I can still remember how sometimes the pastor's wife can be the loneliest person in the Church.
So, thank God for the many congregations throughout the country who seek to still honor and respect their First Lady in loving and wise ways. It really encourages when I observe the members of some of the oldest historical black churches displaying acts of kindness and love to their First Lady on special occasions.
Happy Birthday First Lady Kate F. Black.
