new too 08/02/06 10:28 AM I have two years or so ago been diagnosed with MCI. This seemed to begin more or less about the time we had a problem in our church that was very traumatic for me. I didn't go back to church( been there for 20 years) for two years. Started back about the time a new pastor came. He had been there before and we thought he had matured so much in the seven years he'd been away. After only seven months of commuting and being helped tremendously he told us he was not to be trusted, had too many problems, anger, lying,etc. Nevertheless he wanted to remain another three months before resigning due to the fact his wife would graduate cllege and would be able to get a job. A long story short the church had to go through a terrible event to get him out of the pulpit immediately and pay him the tthree months pay. No contract just an answer. Now I am back where I started two years ago. Devastated. I can't bear the idea of returning to church. I have to say in 20 years we have been through many things with pastors who were not what they seemed to be. HELP!!!!
