At breakfast this AM, one of my family members said, "Mom, you are using your pastor voice." Panic ripped through my body. And I laughed at the absurdity. I regrouped and calmly asked what my pastor's voice sounds like. "I don't know. Louder. Different." When I was just starting seminary,Â a wise friend made me promise that I would never use a pastor voice. "When you are a pastor, just talk normally. Please."Â Only two years in and I am being called on it. When did I jump the shark?
