I just want to thank everyone who has taken the time to express support for me right now. I’m in a much better place than I was on Tuesday, but everything is still up in the air. I think a huge part of the reason I’m in a better place is because of people who actually took the time to let me know they cared (Something I’m horrid at–I always think, “I need to remember to do that.” and then I forget.) either by just telling me they were praying for me, or sending me links to job search sites, or allowing me to share their lunch experience while we chatted on the phone, or offering to issue a fatwa on the bishops in question, or even offering to have a disliked pastor ‘done away with’ so I could come and be their pastor (an offer that I sincerely hope was made in jest–it SO doesn’t look good on a pastoral record “Had preceeding pastor offed so she could have his job.” ;)).
The grace and humor that y’all have extended (some of you to a total stranger) is so greatly appreciated. As a good Lutheran, I can’t say that I believe in karma, but if I did: you’d get some seriously good shit coming back your way.
So thanks. 🙂
