This past weekend, my grandfather passed away. I was trying to get down to LA to see him one last time, but I didn’t get a chance to, which is a bit saddening.
The reason why the title of the post is “my family is crazy” is that on my grandfather’s death bed, one of my cousins, a junior in high school, told my grandfather that he is going to be a pastor too.
My brother is also discerning a call into ministry too.
If they both go through with their calls… that means:
my late grandfather was a pastor
my uncle is a pastor
my aunt is married to a pastor
then my cousin is looking into become a pastor.
that’s just my mom’s side.
My dad’s oldest brother is a pastor.
His two sons are a pastor and his daughter is married to a pastor.
My dad’s a pastor.
I’m a pastor.
And my brother is looking into it.
I mean, what the heck? We have no chance of being a normal family, ever.
There’s just too many pastors in our clan. Are we like the Levites? Geez.
My wife’s father is a pastor.
A bunch of my wife’s distant relatives are pastors.
I mean, really, it’s ridiculous.
We’re just a collective group of crazy people. =)

I am sorry to hear about your grandfather. Thanks for sharing the story of your family.
Sorry about your grandfather joe. It sounds like you’re family is could start their own church with the number of pastors in the family.
Sorry to hear about your grandpa.
I have to say I do think that family lines can be called. I have a number of past relatives that were and I know my great-grandpa and grandpa both admitted right before their deaths to running from the call. My uncle was a pastor but has left the faith for some thing (still praying for him), my dad is called, I am called, etc.
