Grrrrrr

We are in the middle of church upheaval.  I don't personally care for it.  Jonathan is a deacon and on the board and this has placed us directly the middle.  In the church leadership we are in the minority.

Why can't church leadership listen to their congregants more?  Right now I know we have a ton of people praying and our feelings don't match those of our elders.  It's hard to take our elders opinion seriously when they are not actively involved (as they should be) in the shepherding and spiritual growth of our church.  Those who make the church run, who work and are constantly trying to build our church in spiritual growth are being ignored for the desires of the elders.

Right now we aren't seeing them following God's plan we are seeing them following their own.

I will pray, I will study and I will fight for my church.  It's not about the building it's about the people that we have committed to work with and God's will.

And church crises just always leave you feeling...I don't know, dirty. Like, 'this shouldn't be happening here. This is God's house.'

I know what you mean.
