You would think I would have learned a long time not to ask the question. "What else can happen?"  Then you find out.  I am absolutely disgusted right now and it is in the direction of my church.

For those of you who don't know me my login is not because of the TV program.  I am a Soprano.  I have been in the choir at my church for 10 years. In the fall we got a new choir director. My 15 year old daughter starting coming to choir with me. One of the proudest moments I have had in a very long time.  Suddenly there is a push to move the rehearsal day to Thursday.  I fought against it as hard as I was willing to. My daughter is in high school and has tests every friday so that removes that proud moment doesn't it. When I announced she wouldn't be able to come one cared. Call me oversensitive but that hurt.  I made the decision walking out of rehearsal last night that I was done with choir.

I went to work today, also at my church and was hit by another torpedo. The director resigned.  She is a close personal friend.  I fell apart when that was announced. I don't cry easily but that did it.  She had a special meeting with all of us to tell us.

So now what?  Where do I go from here?  Somewhere along the line some of our members are forgetting that the church isn't about what they want it is about God's will. In the mean time the rest of us are taking the hit.

Feb. 1, 2008 at 1:14 PM I'm sorry. Our church has undergone major changes in the last year and a half and they were painful. Things are getting better now, but hang in there! I tend to take things very personal, too. Are you part of a large church? Sometimes I think a small one would be more homey. Well, sending prayers your way~
