A lot of email has flown around on this issue the last few days.
The church has decided to defer restroom renovations. They are launching (again!) a Capital Campaign for renovations.
I asked them to re-configure the existing, unsafe, grab bars in the women’s restroom. I offered to purchase the new grab bars and have them installed. The committee responded that it will “discuss your grab-bar proposal and will communicate with MMPT and Session and give you feedback ASAP”. I find this faintly insulting – what is there to discuss? It’s a gift, take it!
The committee also says that it “fully understands your frustration and disappointment”. That and a dollar will get me a bad cup of coffee.
Why are these Christians not choking on their own hypocrisy?
I’m going to find a new rehearsal location. Wish me luck.
