A couple weeks ago, on a Tuesday night (4/15), we had a meeting with some of the leaders in the Midwest Region. Our friend Lance put it together. We met at Steve's church in Zanesville. It was: Lance, Bob E., Steve J., Andrew D., Jeff R., Steve W., and Jane and myself. I felt bad because we were both late getting out of work that night, so we were a little late getting there. The meeting started a little after 7, and we were there until maybe 9 pm. It went "ok." I thought it was a good 'first' meeting, but I have a feeling this is the last we'll probably hear from anyone. Anyway, there were several things I wanted to say but didn't, but all-in-all, we got an apology from a key person, and it at least seemed like most everyone still supported me/us as credentialed leaders in the denomination. That was the main thing I wanted to know. So, we'll see. I do really appreciate everyone taking time out of a very busy week to come and meet with us, and especially Lance for putting it together.
But.... to be honest.... at this point I'm kinda just getting tired of trying. Even at the new church. I feel like I/we have something to offer... but no one is really interested. The same goes for where I work. So.... whatever. I'm starting to feel like a useless old man. Again.
It's a cloudy Monday.
