(This is the first chapter of my latest book project entitled Blessing or Bane: The Ups and Downs of Being a Pastor's Kid)
Anak ka pa naman ng pastor! These words, perhaps, can never have an accurate translation in English! It is so loaded with meaning in Filipino that English would not be able to fully express all that it connotes. Perhaps the closest would be: You are a pastor’s kid, you should be a perfect child! Of course, translators would agree that this is not how it should be rendered; but that was exactly how it meant to me as I grew up as a pastor’s daughter.
