Blatherings from my mind, because after all, "How do I know what I think till I see what I say?"
Oh, and I know there are a few clergy members or other full-time church types who read this blog. What would you do if a parishoner brought such a letter to your attention? Just curious...
hmmmm...I honestly don't know how I would react. If this were done from the church directory, I could probably tolerate it. I certainly don't think the office should ever supply the information, and we have a strict policy against giving out information. Honestly, I have a mixed reaction. So long as the church has done nothing to endorse or denounce, I think the seperation of church in state is intact, and you are just getting a (semi) personal letter from a fellow parishioner. At the same time, I see why this is annoying. Did you notice how many words it took for me to simply say, "I don't know"? I guess I am clergy for a reason! ;-)
