So frustrated. There is a core of seven or eight or nine older adults who don't want to do anything different. Session was awful. One session member said that the older people would quit giving if we moved worship from the sanctuary to the fellowship hall for two months this summer. She was adamant that we shouldn't do this.
I want to have worship there so we can do more creative things. I want to have worship on communion Sunday around a meal as the early Christians did. I want to be able to use movie clips and art with my sermon. I want to design worship to be experiential beyond traditional (and frozen chosen) dead.
I want to be creative. I am frustrated that people I love oppose me.
I think it is time to retire.
