This can be a tough one because most of the time (as pastor’s wife) you know. You’ve probably discussed it with your husband and discussed it again and discussed it again.
Sometimes it’s an OK reason and you can simply tell the person asking, “Oh, they moved to Walla Walla.” Or, “Didn’t you hear? Joe’s been hired as music director over at First Community.”
Unfortunately, it isn’t always that easy.
This is a case where I often said, “I know, but I can’t (or don’t want to) talk about it” and then I closed the subject.
And gave my best IPWS (innocent pastor’s wife smile).
