"Sometimes, it's like a hair across your cheek. You can't see it, you can't find it with your fingers, but you keep brushing at it because the feel of it is irritating" –Marian Anderson
Do you feel that hair across your cheek when pastors are referred to as men; when young men (not young women) are encouraged to pursue ministry; when people refer to Pastor's and Wives Retreats rather than Pastor's and Spouses Retreats; when you are overlooked for ministry opportunities? It seems so small doesn't it? It is just one strand of hair. I know someone who likes hair tickling her face, she doesn't find it irritating. I must admit I don't understand that. Does that strand of hair bother you? Are you able to brush it away? Or do you just keep brushing at it, unable to remove it?
