As the sun was starting to shine on Tuesday over 100 pastors’ wives gathered at First Baptist Church of Glenarden for a First Ladies Chat ‘n Chew. The event hosted by First Lady Trina Jenkins, First Lady DeeDee Freeman, First Lady Peggy Maclin and Co-Pastor Susie Owens brought together pastors’ wives from Prince Georges County, MD and as far away as Tennessee. Everything was beautifully prepared and executed. From the arrival where cars were valet parked, to the the fresh flowers and satin linens, to the swag bags and a splendid buffet that included a breakfast area and a lunch area, all of the pastors’ wives felt special.
I was delighted to attend this signal event. It meant so much to be able to spend extended time with my sisters in the faith, all the more as many times we only manage chats that we sneak in passing from one service to the next. Sure, the intent is always to get together and sometimes we do, but today took getting together to a whole new level. While there was agreement that content shared by the sisters would remain in the atrium at Glenarden, Co-Pastor Susie Owens blessed with her power packed nuggets, Place, Position and Posture, that’s all I can say. Except for this, The FabFour really pulled this affair together and on the response cards many only wanted to know, When can we do this again?
