CSpice - A Mailing List for Clergy Spouses
CSpice is a majordomo mailing list dedicated to providing mutual support for spouses of Christian clergy. Membership in the list is open to spouses of Christian clergy. In the interest of encouraging people to enter this vocation with open eyes, membership is also open to:
To subscribe: mail a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the message:
Once I receive your subscription request, I will return a short questionnaire. (A copy of the questionnaire can me previewed here.) You must return the questionnaire before I will process your subscription. The questionnaire helps ensure that the list is reaching the people that it should. No information returned in the questionnaire will be disclosed to third parties.
To unsubscribe: mail a message to email@example.com with the message:
To post to the list, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org . Only members of the list may post to it.
Any topic of interest to clergy spouses is on-topic. On-topic subjects include (but are not limited to):
I will declare a few subjects off-topic to the list.
All of the messages on the list should be considered private and confidential. They should not be forwarded to other persons nor discussed in other forums without the explicit permission of the poster. You may choose to add a phrase such as "OK to distribute" to posts of your own that you wish to grant permission in advance to redistribute. Often material that you forwarded to the list from another source is appropriate to label this way.
While the members of the list agree that they have an expectation of privacy, email, once sent, effectively becomes out of your control. A frequently quoted rule of email is that you shouldn't post anything which you would be embarassed to see posted on the church bulletin board.
Send me mail at email@example.com. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
