Street Cred

Hey all!

Just thought I'd share with my homies that TOW1 has been to church two Sundays in a row now. Last week was VBS, this week was a baptism. And THIS week they actually came in late while I was doing announcements so the entire congregation was able to turn as one, wide-eyed to see how I was handling it.

I handled it fine. Whatever.
I really have no ill-will there any more, mainly apathy with a touch of self-righteous indignation.

Feel free to commence your own indignation!

well, let's say you handling it fine in a relatively short period of time is much quicker than I did! TOOK ME A MUCH LONGER TIME!

bleh....she is so not worth your energy.

Okay...since I am your current resident Crankypants Commenter I'll say it:

"Where the hell is COM???"

At ease... this really is not a big deal. I look at her and truly the only emotion I feel is pity with a dash of sadness because I have moved on ALL but physically (and that is coming) whereas she is stuck in 'this' place forever.

And, I AM COM.

Teri said...

ooh, the part where you ARE the COM is hardest.

time to go, friend, time to go. and maybe one day we'll all find our righteous indignation simmered down just barely enough that we can pray for her to not be such an idiot..umm, I mean, for her to move on as well. ;-)

I guess you know how I feel about this, so I won't say it again. Praying for the right move.

Just know your homies the RevGals got your back, and the Holy Spirit too.

Peace and love,

indig, indig, indig...
I'm doing it wildly, you know!
But proud of you, as you also know I'm sure xx

Mary Beth said...


that's what I have to say about that.

Okay, I've gone over to my place and done my own rant about a completely unrelated subject, but I just want to throw this out there:

You are not the whole COM. Where are your buddies, the ones who have your back on this?

Even though you are being all grown-uppy and evolved on this, it ain't right. And that's the last time I'll say it.

will smama said...

Cheese, my flip response about COM really meant that I have easy access to people who are willing to jump in on this. BUT, it's not worth it.

a) My guess is they are not coming back to worship here.
b) They will be in the community a LOT longer than I will even if I don't make a move for another year (or God forbid) more so why be the one in the way
c) We all know that on paper we can run members out, but yuck... this is SO not worth that.

Sadly, for her, she has no self-esteem enough to realize that she should say, "thanks but no thanks" when invited to these things at my church.

If you saw how pitiful her predicament was you would know why I just don't care.

Towanda said...


Prayers. For both of you.

Identity Mixed said...

She sucks.

cheesehead said...

Okay. I'll take your word for it.

St. Casserole said...

Street Cred established and more!
My Mother would say you handle difficult things "like a Lady."

I say, "You da Woman!"

Her situation is pitiful. I'm sorry for her.

Happy Traveling!

The word-recognition thing on this comment is "hubgnood" which is sort of evocative too....

lorna (see throughfaith) said...

the rowing has helped. Glad -for you-that you are handling it better. Because you are worth it!
