  • Every church has one and mine is no exception - a matriarch or mother of the church.

    It's not a title or position someone campaigns for or is appointed to, but it's a role someone becomes by virtue of her love and faith and selfless faithfulness.

    In my church, that would be a tiny pipsqueak named Betty Santana. I always tell Betty that the reason I like her so much is because I tower over her. The truth is, even though she's only about 4-foot-9 or so, she towers over everyone at my church, me included.
