Finally, Something

E-mail I received tonight from PNC chair:

Dear Pastor Iris,

I am sorry that I have not communicated to you lately – we have been very busy in our discernment process.

We have not yet offered a call, so I would ask a little more patience. We expect to finish this very shortly.

After nearly a month of no contact, I'm not sure what to make of this.

weird. This whole situation feels very sketchy somehow. I don't know what your gut is telling you, but from reading your saga mine says "warning, warning!!"

It's all very strange. But I'm glad they finally emailed you, even if it was weird!

could they have been more vague? prayers iris that God would speak to your heart and to theirs... so God's will is done.

sigh. so strange...

Singing Owl said...

I don't know what to make of it either. Weird. Can they just be so...inept at understanding how to do this? So unaware of what they put you through? So clueless? I don't know. Praying for you.

sheesh. i got nothin'.

Iris said...

Thanks, all. Things just aren't adding up. Teri, my "gut" is telling me that they are stringing me along just in case it falls thorugh with someone else.

Iris, I think you're right, it's very similar to the way a church communicated with me while pursuing another candidate. She was my classmate, so we compared notes! Sorry about this waiting.

Rev SS said...

My gut says "warning" too, Iris. Sorry. Reminds me of the time the PNC I was waiting for was split 4 to 2 ... and supposedly worked it out and voted unanimous ... but alas, those 2 had undermined me with misrepresentations before I got there. It was a short term "designated" assignment ... and we accomplished nothing while I was there.

Rev SS said...

p.s. I'm praying for you too.

imngrace said...

No words. Just a big sigh and continued prayers for you as you figure out what's next--with or without them.

Rev Kim said...

Sigh. Continued prayers...

Crimson Rambler said...

I'm sort of reacting with rev ss on this one, sounds to me like DEADLOCK on the committee..."Danger, Will Robinson!!!" I say.
Keeping you in my prayers here!

cheesehead said...

Oh, my. How strange. God's ways are not our ways, but still...

Holding you in prayer.

PK said...

Unless someone... leader type... on the committee has been ill or out-of-pocket... I'm going with what you said Iris... they are stringing you along just in case that someone else doesn't work out.
