My former Rector has been letting loose on his blog again, complaining about a former church member who continues negative blogging about Rick Warren "even though they left our church four months ago!" One of his responses to this is to quote again from Uncle Rick:

“If you wrestle with a pig you’ll both get dirty.”

A couple of months ago, this would have elicited a blistering response from yours truly. Now? A giggle and a yawn. I have said what I had to say. I am so out of there!

To paraphrase Dorothy Parker: "Loving my new church is the best revenge."

I am sorry that former rector is into pig wrestling, but that is his dirty problem, no?

Good for you. Be at peace. Live your life.

Glad that things move ahead for you.

Wow - that's pretty crazy that someone would write about a former member. It might be better for your own peace and sanity not to read your former church's blog.

BTW I remember (I think it was on this blog, not 100% sure) info about Rick Warren being anti-GLBT. I double checked that elsewhere (gay community news, etc.) and you were right. That's a huge problem and I'm shocked and disappointed that an Episcopal church (you did say your old congregation is episcopal, right?) would endorse a program of his.
