This week has been an interesting on; to say the least. I don’t want to say a lot about the particular circumstances; rather my intent is about what I did about it. Church discipline is an interesting sphere for me and my family.
I am divorced and remarried; and my sons live with their mum and I have part time custody. It’s no secret that I came out of an abusive marriage; and in circumstances that the church handled extremely poorly. Because of various circumstances I approached my ex wife’s pastor; asking that he set up a meeting between he and the church elders; my ex wife and myself; in the letter I described the ongoing abuse and misinformation that abounds about the separation.
I have as yet not heard from this pastor. My ex today told me that he intends to do nothing about it; as he sees her in good standing with the church…these words did come from my ex wife though…
It will be interesting to see what comes of this. I think nothing will happen and therefore I’m thinking about my next step in going above this pastors head to the national state executive… But perhaps I am wrong about what this pastor will do.
It won’t be the first time I have been wrong.
