I have had several incidents test my faith recently.
The first was getting over my head into a job that I could barely handle.
The second was being involved in a church with an interim minister who believed that the best way to handle a crisis was to shuffle things under the rug and favor the one who had given the most money and had the most influence.
I think about how sin builds upon sin. I think about what a human response retaliation is and as I go to court Thursday to fight my harasser, who is still allowed into the church, I guess all I want really is an apology.
I want a heartfelt "I'm sorry for putting you through all of this." I may never obtain it, but that's all I really want.
