Dear Lynda,

Thanks for the kind words, I am very excited to be part of this website. Thanks for including me.  I am back at my old church, in the postion I held for 10 years, was gone for 5 years to partner in ministry with my husband a small church in Laramie, Wy and when I came back, everything has changed! Not quite the reception I expetced.  The lady I took over for was "let go" and some people were not happy about it, so they are trying to make my life miserable... not acting very Christ like, so the "homecoming has been difficult.  I need all the support I can get.  This looks like a good place to start.

Thanks Lynda. I'm glad to be here and looking forward to learning the site.
