If you are getting sick of whiny posts, then you best leave now. This is not going to be much better.

I met with a rector of a local Episcopal church yesterday. My feelings about the whole thing are almost more than I can state. I am happy that things are starting to move but I am upset that a bunch of stuff was going on without my knowledge. The canon has been sending e-mails about my Anglicanization to her without sending anything to me. I would have liked to have known what was being done. I also would have liked to have known that my chances of getting a call were nill before I became destitute. It would have been nice of them to treat me like an adult.

I am thoroughly losing any respect I have ever had for organized religions.

I have gone through school, I have graduated. Now I feel like I at square zero. You know, the way I'm feeling is that I really don't need the church. Why put up with all the bull. Serving God's people shouldn't be so convoluted.

I am just all kinds of angry and don't really know how to channel this anger so as to do good and not just get me in another intractable bind.

I'm not sure, but you may want to contact a lawyer about the Canon's conduct.

Yes, sadly, it is this kind of machination that brought me to where I am today. I share your disenchantment. I was lucky enough to find my peace and fulfillment in "serving" in "unorthodox" ways.

I know how you feel. If you need any Anglicanization, I'll be glad to give private lessons!

Shalom to you, my brother.
