Since the announcement of The Curate's departure (last service 22nd May), I have been avoiding church. Coward? Yes. Having experienced one service since the announcement, where I seemed to have become invisible to some people, I am staying away until the dust has settled.
The Curate is fielding quite a few disappointed people. Others think it is great that the Bishops have decided that The Curate and I might actually be better together than apart. They are aware that I tried to get work up near The Curate. Too old, too expensive and too experienced. I'm not in a good place right now but I will get over it. A little space and God's grace is all that is needed - so off to walk the dogs and get blown about on the beach. ( The Curate is at church).
