No not relocating, moving. He has begun his moving forward with making S take time off. He met with S the day I left town to ask him to “pray” about this. It is for his own good and the good of S’s family.
That is pure garbage.
Now, he is accelerating the whole matter. I am not sure where it is going. I am not sure what to do.
My gut says it is time to meet with the chairman of the elders. I don’t know if he is safe. He is safer than E. If I try to stop E from making this power play and fail, then I guess it is the end of this blog because E will make his move on S and move me out at the same time.
If I let E bully someone else–someone for whom I serve as pastor and boss–what kind of real credibility do I have?
I don’t believe I have the track record with the lead elder to sway him to deal with E.
So if I go to M, I will likely lose my job. If I don’t, I may lose my soul.
God, where do I go?
