Don’t Cha Wish Your Pastor Was Hot Like Mine?

Don’t Cha Wish Your Pastor Was Hot Like Mine? September 24, 2008
I just had to laugh when I first read this article in a link sent by a friend.  Nothing surprising about it, really, but worth a moment of levity, for sure.  Seems it’s causing a bigger stink than it really should be, as folks are discussing it in other places, too.
So, in the true spirit of exacerbating an already ridiculous “controversy” (which is one of my favorite pasttimes, I confess) I would here like to post pictures of some of the most wonderful pastors I know. 
Be very careful . . . they are women.
The ever-stylish Rev. Rachel Cornwell, pastor of Woodside United Methodist Church.

All these fabulous women have acted as pastors to me at various points in my life and I know so many more gifted women in congregational leadership and ordained ministry.  If you want to participate with me in the outrage, feel free to post a tasteful . . . ahem . . . picture of your female pastor in the comments!
