"But you, Lord, are a shield around me, my glory, the One who lifts my head high"
Hey Joanne,Her reply to me...
When Joe took the position at the church he made it clear to the church that they were not hiring me that I would be a member like everyone else. That is how it went all those years. I was drama director and I helped with the music ministry under dave for years and then Scott came in. Initially we worked well together but not for long. We did not click. I can remember we argued once ,I don't even know when it was, I know it had to do with music but I can't remember the details. I did not leave the church because of him. If I was not present in the church as much as I had been it was because my father fell ill in the spring of 2007 and died Nov 2007 of pancreatic cancer. I took care of him during this painful process, very difficult. After that my mom started to go down hill very quickly and was soon in hospice care. She later died Jan 2009. Very stressful time for me. That was the main reason I was disconnected.Please call Melissa and get the scoop of his voluntary retirement. It has nothing to do with me. Please call Mark B., Joe's boss at the time and he will tell you the same.Why does this matter? He already lied and said he was fired and that is not the case. Isn't that enough?
