Well, That Was an Ungracious, Bitchy Thing to Say
These are the words that popped into my head as a church member-- whom I have thought of as a smart, funny, interesting, want-to-use-her-gifts-in-the-best-way-possible person-- slammed one rather important aspect of yesterday's service.
It was a beautiful service, thanks, in large part, to persons other than myself leading and ministering beautifully.
It was a meaningful service for the five individuals who joined the church (including my Petra).
It highlighted one aspect of our ministry, but, I believe, appropriately, and within the context of our ministry of worship.
She was the very first person to greet me at the door as the service ended.
What she said was mean-spirited, aimed at one person (not me), and totally objectionable.
So... help me let go of it, God. Why is it still bothering me?
