I really don’t know whether I will ever finish my funeral planning book but I HAVE STARTED. I wrote an opening telling my story and I set up a new folder called book. I started transferring readings, starting with the Old Testament. decided that I am more of a paper person than a computer person so I have made the decision to print things, get the references correct etc. and then edit it in the computer. It is kind of like this work. I write in word and then cut and paste into Called to Conspire
So I have learned a few things for all you wonderful conspirators. I have learned that I am not as alone as I sometimes think. Thanks for the encouragement.
Last week I talked about my friend who has been so hurt in her church job. I talked to her today and she had another job interview yesterday. She feels good about the interview and thinks she will get the job. She also said that she will only enter a church to go to her friend’s funerals. She is done with church. I understand. I cannot give up the community, but I sure could give up church. I said to her today that I think we should start a house church and she said she would be in with that. This is what the institution has done to so many. It is very painful to me.
