As some have said, the problem is I'm still a MS. For the moment I can't step down although already thinking about moving to another congregation this year and not accepting my appointment in the new congregation.
Don't think about it make the move ASAP. A move out of one congregation even out of the circuit is the best way to fade. Once you create the distance you can fade.
If the subject is brought up you say every thing is fine just having to work harder because you have more expenses to cover.
Or if you want to go 'Full Monty' bring up the pedophile problem........ tell them to research it for themselves because you don't want to talk about it at this time........it's just too upsetting. It has stumbled you.
