not exactly gifted

Since Monday night I've been searching for the perfect way to briefly update you on Monday's Meeting. I kept wanting to come up with the perfect metaphor, but it's clear that I don't have Niobe's Superpower. So let me just say that it was basically a non-event. No one made a stink. The actions of the national church were referred to a few times, giving the Disgruntled Church Members an opportunity to speak up that they did not take. This doesn't necessarily mean that it won't still come back and be an issue later, but for now it seems that reason, kindness and grace are actually winning out. Imagine that.

I've been a bit busy this week, heading into tech week, planning a birthday party, and the other little things that make up my life, and I've been neglecting the blog. But I'll be back Monday with a Mission. Won't you join me? Our mission is to write a post in the form of a photo essay - tell your story completely through pictures.

I'm glad the meeting went well, your blogher add is advertising pepto--hope you won't be needing it? looking forward to Monday

I'm glad the meeting was a non-issue. Phew!

Maybe kindness and grace will become the new trend? That would be refreshing.

YAY!

It was a non event at our church, too. Mostly because we recently hired someone in "that way" to be on staff, and if anyone had a problem with it, they've already left the congregation.

Phew! I'm so happy that the congregation (?) is so sensible.
Am about to launch into the MM, but I may need just a few little words...oh dear, Mary G just can't stop talking.

Oh, I don't know-- photos and blogging, I'll try to stretch myself ;-) Sounds fun. I'm glad the meeting was non-eventful!
