I ran into some bethel "bad batch" rejects a couple in their fifties and the wife was desperately trying to cling to whatever dignity and social cred she thought she still had but the hubbie definitely would have talked more candidly if she didn't keep changing the subject to a more postive tone.
I asked him what was going to happen to the branch, if they would sell of some properties and he said
" Of course they will they're not sentimental about it."
Me : "Well they 're not sentimental about people why would they be sentimental about buildings."
At about that point the missus quickly changed the subject to how wonderfully they were supported by the congregation. He would have talked more if she let us.
