I’ve got to go home and talk with the wife tonight. I sent Kevin an email, seeing if he would mediate a conversation between TBWSNBN. Essentially I just wanted her to understand that something was being done so she doesn’t have to send text messages to my friends complaining how I shouldn’t be preaching anymore.
Kevin declined the request. He suggested that the best way to solve the TBWSNBN problem was just to meet with my elders and talk about my “process”. He offered to be present at that meeting. That was actually a good suggestion. It takes the heat off of me having to facilitate that meeting. I have a feeling though, this meeting will result in either a sabbatical or my resignation.
Unless I hear back from an employer soon, I’ll probably have this conversation at our next scheduled meeting. The irony will be that this meeting will take place on the anniversary of the vote to install me as pastor. Yikes! Let’s lay that on a little thick.
