Church saga continues...

I received an email from the gal who schedules the counters at my Church. She wanted to know when we would be able to count for the new schedule starting Jan 1. She said she knew that it would be difficult for some of us because of the situation and some leaving and all.

I wrote back that I would be unable to continue to count after Jan 1st. I figured that would be a good clean break time. But I could and intended to keep up with the dates that I was already scheduled for.

She emailed back that I didn't need to come on my last scheduled date so I wouldn't have to feel uncomfortable.

Hummm? I don't see why I should feel uncomfortable about it. I don't hold any grudges against these people. Sigh! Oh well.

Then I get an email from the confirmation coordinator asking if my child would continue. There I just said yes, cuz we intend to keep her there until we find something else and I don't want her tossed out. At least that she can't be tossed out of...they'll confirm non-members.

Our intention was to stay at our Church until our pastor leaves. I found out tonight that council has asked him to leave on Jan 3rd. Surprisingly that is the date we have scheduled to meet and get things going for our new Church.

It seems that either our old Church wants us out of there, or God wants us to get going on the new Church. I'm gonna have to believe that it's God!

Someone needs to find their edit button!

okay, I'll be the first to admit that my personal feelings for this person are probably hugely responsible for my reaction.

That said someone I know recently posted in a public forum way too much personal information. She let it sit for a while and then went back later embarrassed and deleted her post and all comments that had been made referring to the TMI.

Normal members of this forum don't have the ability to do this. A normal member would have only been able to delete their own post. Moderators & Administrators have this ability.

A former moderator had some of her comments deleted. And she made a stink about the deletion (she has some sort of compulsion to have the most comments on the board).

I'm not so concerned with the former moderator (I'm not a fan of her either) but I do think that miss lack of edit button(mleb) should have received more than the pat on the back and the "that's okay, but don't do it again" that she got. I really feel that to do the job that (mleb) has she doesn't really need to have moderator status and I think she has proven more than once she doesn't have the self control that a moderator needs.

Church voted...

to do nothing!

We were asked to vote if we wanted to leave the synod or not. They voted no.

We were then asked if:

1) we were happy with the synod and wanted to tell them so.

2) we were unhappy with the synod and wanted to tell them so.

3) we were neither happy or unhappy and wanted to tell the synod so.

They voted for #3!

So we are pretty much exactly where we were before, only now that we've voted we loose one of our Pastors.
