Get Me This Pastor Couple!


I just came from a funeral in Decatur where Rev. Ray Harmon & Rev. Wendy Harmon spoke for just a few moments. They came in from their church in Plano where the church meets in a movie theater.

I don't know anything about them, but they captivated me. And I'm guessing everyone else.

Heartfelt, earnest, and funny ("I've got a little ghetto in me"). And incredibly sweet.

Kate Fostel had attended their church over the last year. The female pastor, while giving a rousing message,  brought out a gift bag next to the pulpit and said that she had "a little something for the family". I promise, at that point, no one knew what to expect. What was it? A sign in sheet from their church's bible study group. An original from a past study. On it, was Kate's signature -- it was the first one she ever attended there.

Pass me the Kleenex.

"I've got a little ghetto in me"



Sounds like a racist comment.

Now we know where the love for Obammy comes from.

Damn Me, but I'm moved, and I wasn't there, and I'm an athiest.

A woman can't be a pastor.

Feel proud for yourself people, as you post jokes and mock a young woman's funeral... you hide behind keyboards and screens and poke at serious issues that clearly should be above comedy. I post on here very often with my "funny" takes and humor.. but never at the expense of tragedy.
if you feel like you want to have a joke series start at the expense of a friend of mines funeral, please give me and call:

2:40, ... Really?

I knew you were a racist. I didn't know you were a dick.

I was there as well and they were so sweet. Added fun to the service which I know Kate would have loved. Setting up "Kate's Kids" was such a beautiful tribute. Kate will be missed.

They are my Pastor’s and I am captivated by their messages every Sunday. They are the most genuine people that love the Lord and our community. I can’t thank them enough for going to Decatur to honor my precious friend. They loved Kate and she loved them.

If it was racist, it was by choice. She was a beautiful black woman, who also joked about her afro vs Kate's long braid.

Were comments deleted? I don't understand what 8:20 is so upset about. A tasteless comment or two, but nothing that warrants a meeting in the alley.

I wasn't able to attend the service, but I've heard nothing but positive comments from those who were there. The Harmons sound like wonderful people whose ministry touched not only Kate, but many others.

What Pastor Wendy actually said in response to Kate signing up to help with the Children's church,(a job very hard to fill in most churches)after she had been a bit under the weather and missed a Sunday was "girl, I'm country, but I'm also ghetto and I WILL come find you!" (meaning, we need you!) A ministry has been set up by the Church for their children's ministry to support two children each year in poverty stricken Countries in Kate's name. A ministry called Kate's Kids will give Kate a legacy far beyond her short life! I'm not a member of this Church but I was a friend of Kate's and I greatly appreciate these wonderful Pastor's and their church!
