This is me tearing my hair out. I spent a week getting names of people willing to stand for various positions. People who have never been asked to do anything in the church before (trying to get more involvement of the younger folk) and I had people saying, "Well I thought P____ would be the next Vice Chair!" Now what don't these people including P_____ think "let their name stand for nomination" means? Here I am trying to get more people involved and all they want to do is recycle the same old group. Oh well it seems that I can not win for trying.
Right now I think I have half the parish council mad at me, but in my heart I know that I am doing the right thing. It is time for a massive change of the old guard (not that I am one, I am known to be a rebel) and I am really going to try and see that it happens (if God wills it).
Well off to visit you all now. Have a wonderful evening. God bless.
