Taking a week off Twitter now to be with friends and family. If you see me back here before then, yell at me.

@GibsonWrites @publicroad Yep. Complicated. Beyond pulpit, I’m thinking experience, education, etc. as pastors. “Preacher” is a bit more slippery.

@GibsonWrites @publicroad In all seriousness, I think they’re often mislabeled preacher/pastors bc their fathers were so famous in that role. But one leads a charity and the other a university, and neither has ever lead a congregation. That’s important.

@GibsonWrites @publicroad Sweet-talking sons of the preachermen. (Apologies to Dusty Springfield.)
