Ok i need some quick advice. The elders have contacted my wife about a sheparding call, not me (is that weird?). Anyways she directed them to text or call me. Theyve asked "Hey Jon! Whens a good time for a shelarding call?"
I need some help in declining respectfully without giving anything away.
I thought: "Thanks for taking your time to reach us and thank you for your concern. Is there an issue that we need to be concerned about?....then if he keeps asking say: "Well i know Wife and I havent been very regular, but we told everyone what was going on. And we reassured everyone that we are good and that we will let someone know if theres anything we need." Then if he pursues it further and asks if we can do a sheparding call ill say "I appreciate your concern but, respectfully, i am going to decline. If there is an issue the. You can talk to me about it. Thanks again and I appreciate your concern for us."
so is there anything else i need to add?
