Clergy Appreciation Month  Clergy Appreciation Month  Clergy Appreciation Month

October is Clergy Appreciation Month. 

Although this is publishing a little later than I hoped (due to my mid-month vacation), I wanted to highlight a few excellent new books for Clergy Appreciation Month that might be great gifts to give to your pastor, or if you are a pastor yourself, to treat yourself to or to give to co-pastors or other friends who are pastors.

Embodied: Clergy Women and the Solidarity of a Mothering God

Lee Ann Pomrenke

For women raising children while leading in ministry, life is a deep set of particular blessings intertwined with challenges.

The book is for clergy who are also mothers, with powerful encouragement to share the teeth-gritting beauty of this tension with those who can support us. Stories worthy of tears, chuckles or groans from the lives of “clergy mamas” may echo the reader’s as the author confronts the assumptions people make about mothers who lead. Every chapter ends with reflection questions for clergy mothers—and some specifically for the people who need to engage with them.

The exhortations of this book are grounded in solid theological reflection. Ultimately, the author points to a practical, lived theology of the determined assertion that every Christian–not just mama, not just the clergy–is crucial to raising the family of God.
