Things have been moving so quickly, I have hardly had time to stop and write about things that are happening. But this week I will write a few posts to get caught up!
I resigned from my position at my old church a couple of weeks ago. I actually gave notice til the end of the year but the senior pastor likes to get people out the door quickly. So…he decided to pay me into January but get me out the door on November 30. So Wednesday of this week is my last day.
It has been a whirlwind! My resignation was announced to the congregation a week ago as I stood before 1000 people and told them that I was moving on. And yesterday was my last Sunday in the church services. I can’t believe it happened so quickly. I had to say “goodbye” to people the past two Sundays and I know there are some people who haven’t been around those two weeks and have no idea I am gone. Crazy! I had a story down that I was telling everyone as to why I was leaving (all of which was true…it just wasn’t the whole truth). There were tears shed by some people and I know there are others who are confused as to why I left. A lot of people said really nice things to me and I was wished well. I only wonder what those same people will say and think when the truth finally gets around!
There is so much change going on in my life right now that I don’t think I have really processed the emotions of leaving the church. I love that church…and love many of the people. My time there was really good. I will miss seeing those people regularly!
