This has been a difficult couple of weeks as far as church goes. There was an event at our church. A former priest had been invited to participate in the event. This person had repeatedly thrown us under the church bus during their time here. I had forgiven this person but I was not prepared for the anger I felt when I found myself in the same room as person. I was glad when the event was over.
Lent and Holy Week are coming up. Last year a certain faction in church had raised Holy Hell because Sarah used the female bathroom. It was really bad.....ugly. One of the ring leaders for the insurrection is a member of church who serves at the altar. I find myself really dreading Holy Week because the difficulty last year was at it's peak during Holy Week. The memories are really painful for me. I'm not sure how to deal with this right now.
Tonight there was a new development that may turn out okay or may not. Things never move fast with churches. I think we could use some prayers.
Funny, all the kids in our lives have been great lately. Wish they ran a church.
