We have been humbled by the response and enthusiasm that has been coming from people about this study. The clergy spouses and children who are willingly sharing their stories, good and hard, as well as registering to help with future research has really encouraged us to keep going and get these results out there so Australia can know what is going on! Thank you to all the universities, church denominations, individuals and Christian groups who are sharing this study, please keep it up!
While we haven't started looking at results, we are very close to our minimum of 100 responses to ensure anonymity for participants. For more on anonymity, have a look at this blog :)
The next entry here is from my very talented research assistant! Trained in science, theology and with a first-hand experience caring for clergy families - as well as being a clergy worker.
