Well, I am at that spot in processes that is a little scary. I had a phone interview with a church at the beginning of the month, and their application time was through Labor Day. So now comes the waiting period. Will I receive a phone call, an e-mail, or a letter. The first two are good things, the last, usually not so good. So I get to wait.
I have been supplying around, and that is a good thing, it keeps my skills in shape. Although I do find that some of my critical thinking skills have seemed to slip somewhat. I also find that the specter of depression is always in the wings. I guess that is just going to be something that I will have to live with.
I am feeling better about all the stuff that happened at my last church. Maybe someday I will write a book about clergy abuse. (Isn't that what we all do, write a book?) People can be so mean. And when they get mean, they get abusive. I know that I was just the car in the way, but it often feels so intentional. I really have to question what people mean when they say they are Christian. Such hate and anger does not strike me as kind.
