Have a cyber hug, honey! I love you!

Have a cyber hug, honey! I love you!

Wow! I'm also sorry that this happened to you. You know that my husband and I have been involved and worked at several churches in our lives.

The church is supposed to be a place for the hurting and those who need love and acceptance. However, I do have a feeling that the same thing would happen in most churches just because of the stigma related to the issue. If you were at any of the churches I have gone to, I'm pretty sure they would all say that you would need to take some time off, not forever, but just a while.

I do understand both sides. Yours is this issue is between you and God. You've taken responsibility for your actions and asked for forgiveness which He always gives. On the other side, they are thinking we don't want to condone this thing.

Time does heal all wounds. It's so true. I also have been hurt numerous times by people in the church, but eventually with lots of prayer and encouragement, I get through it.

Thanks for your honesty! You rock, girl!

I'm sorry hon. At least you are trying to put it behind you. Not saying you will let go, but put i behind you.
If it doesn't kill ya - itll make ya stronger!



Oh, wow. I am so sorry that this happened to you a...

Oh, wow. I am so sorry that this happened to you at all.
And as you said, and someone else said, that was between you, Kris, David and God. No one else.

And Kris does sound like such a wonderful man, I love that he brought you all of those emergency supplies too! That IS romantic.

I think that you were able to take away a lot from that experience, even though the elder was NOT acting on God's behalf in any way and his judgment was muddled.

You were able to find a place to call your own in another church where you feel at home and safe. You were able to learn more about the man you were going to be calling your husband and father of your child and fall more in love with him.
And you were able to see with clarity that the choices of men in a church are of their own doing and not always that of the God they profess to follow, that they are simply human and fallible just as everyone else.
I think this makes you a stronger woman, and someone who is walking the walk. Not in perfection, because no one can be, nor should they pretend to be (elder, anyone?) but one of courage, acceptance, love, and compassion. You can give a lot to the world, and to others, and I think your journey, while painful, has taught you even more about yourself and being a Christian means. And I love that you share that with everyone.

I am not a Christian, but I love and respect your words and your experiences, and am so glad you are here to share them.



Good grief! That's terrible! I'm really sorry that...

Good grief! That's terrible! I'm really sorry that happened to you, and glad you're in a church where you're treated properly now.

I totally agree with you--what happened was between you, Kris, David, and God. For them to expect an apology is ridiculous.

And for them to turn their back on you when you needed them most--WTF?!

Cuz I'm sure those elders apologized to their church leaders every time they sinned. Right.

Don't worry. God knows your heart, and He knows theirs, as well.



So sorry this happened to you. It is a shame when...

So sorry this happened to you. It is a shame when those who are supposed to offer the most love and understanding fail us.

As a lawyer I litigated a case a few years ago where an unmarried Catholic school teacher was fired getting pregnant. It was found that the school/church was within their rights to uphold their "moral code". And this teacher was out of luck. The church did pay half her COBRA for the term of her pregnancy so that she was not uninsured during that time. I always felt it was unfair, but who knows how I would feel if I were a parent of a student.
