    When you are consecrated a bishop -- or a Superintendent -- or an overseer -- or whatever we decide to call them -- you too will be the right reverend!

    Just curious, why do you prefer "right" to "very" or "most." I've always been kind of partial to "the Reverend Canon." It has a nice ring to it!

    How about The Really Right Reverend? Then we can have subordinates who are The Mostly Right Reverend.

    Then you could have Reverend Errant (which sounds like Knight Errant but with an entirely different meaning).

    The little town I pastored in Arkansas had a small storefront African American church that was led by "Apostle Wanda". That always gave me a chuckle for some reason.

    1. I think I'm drawn to the alliteration.

    2. A guy I saw every month at a chamber of commerce meeting for 3-4 years used to call me "the right reverend" or "the very reverend" as a humorous term of endearment. So it has pleasant memories attached.
    Thanks Gina Stevenson - "thanks" for this post

    Beat me to suggesting that the one at the bottom of the totem pole could possibly be
    The Wrong Reverend ... sounding alliterative (eh, Rich), in spite of the W, instead of an R.

    Re: Titles

    Since we are Christ's sheep, how about Flockmaster, Sub Flockmaster. Senior Shepherd oand Junior Shepherd. Why do Nazarenes have a penchant for name changing? How many different names has the missionary orgainization had? We will probably have another round of name changing when the Wesleyans merge with us.
