I was feeling very upset with myself. The Senior Pastor rally didn't deserve the pot-shot I sent his way on Monday. It was purely passive-aggressive and he deserves better than that.
The sermon he gave on my last Sunday was really quite wonderful and very kind. He did not need me lobbing a gernade at him because the congregation did not fight to keep me. Actually, I didn't give them much chance to fight.
The Senior Pastor's first response didn't give me much hope that I could count on him as a support. So I decided to not pursue fighting the ELCA's rule. But hearing about the other congregation that supported their pastor, made me upset. I really don't want to leave, but I guess that is in the cards for me.
