Pastor # 5 (and wife) – SOUTH DAKOTA
One more time.
OK. I was freaked – again (still). Thinking separation/divorce – again. We went to a pastor – again.
Pretty pastor E had a plan. We would meet with him and his pretty wife to do a Marriage Bible Study. This one is really good, he said. This will get to the heart of the problem, not just put a band-aid on it.
We did the meetings and the exercises over a course of many weeks/evenings. Pastor and Mrs. E made a point to remind us several times that they were doing this on their own time. We felt apologetic for taking their family time, but didn’t want to disregard their desire to help or their method of doing so. I don’t remember the content of the Bible Study – or the name. It was another workbooky thingy where you fill in the lines. Usual content; usual verses.
Give them credit. They tried. Really. So did I, sincerely.
I don’t understand why, when people who are praying for guidance to deal with a situation (here I refer to Pastor and Mrs. E), they can be so far from the mark. Again, what hinders prayer for wisdom?
Hang in to hear about Pastor #6, next post. HE HAD EYES TO SEE AND EARS TO HEAR. HE FULFILLED THE LAW AND THE PROPHETS!
