And the point of that was?

I just got off the phone with the Chairman of the Elder Board from my former church. He was calling because the elders are calling everyone that has left the church over the past couple of years...

The entire experience was surreal...
He read the questions that he was given, and then wrote down my answers...


The whole experience felt like communicating unexpectedly with an ex-girlfriend after years of not communicating. I could feel the awkwardness that he felt in calling me and asking me if I had anything that I felt needed to be communicated to the elders, and then not really knowing what to say when I answered by saying that I had said everything that I needed to say when I had resigned...

Very wierd...

Oh how I missed this feeling...

It happened again.

I swore to myself back in December that I was done sending out resumes...
I was (am) sick of the church hiring process...
I was (am) sick of being fed misinformation by churches so that they can keep me on the hook in case something does not work out...


So I was told that I was in the "final four" for a job that I sent a resume in for. I was then told that due to an overwhelming amount of work, that the process was being delayed for three weeks, while the staff dealt with some projects that needed immediate attention.

Today, three weeks later, I was told that in the past three weeks, the top candidate was interviewed, flown out for a visit, and offered a job.

Hello, integrity?
