*yawn* Well, I got up early to go to church with my mom today and fold church newsletters. Some new lady was there and messed us all up so I had to take some extra time to reorganize all the addressed letters after she left. Way to mess up the flow, lady! And she kept calling my mom Ally. So I said to the lady next to my mom, “Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry, I thought your name was Ann! Here it’s Ally.” she says, “It is Ann, dear.
My mom would really like me to join her church, but there have been a few things that I’ve been looking at lately that I don’t particularly like about it.
1.) There aren’t any people below age 40. Who am I suppose to relate to?
2.) The pastor has said some things (albeit I heard this from someone else and not straight from the horses mouth) about being against interracial marriages.
3.) The pastor has oked a petition to be left at the church for people against gay marriages.
Ok, I was brought up to believe that church is where EVERYONE is welcome, isn’t it? Who am *I* to judge someone else’s lifestyle? That’s between that person and God. There are some things I do not agree with, but I really try not to force my opinions and beliefs onto other people. I thought being a pastor he’d be a little more welcoming. I happen to know that one of the ladies at the church has a gay son. How do you think she’d feel if we all signed that petition? I think it’s sad, and I’m really debating being apart of something like that.
So, I’ve booked a vacation. August 13th I’ll be gone until the 16th. Thank goodness for cheap airplane tickets!
