Strange Words

As my family left UBF in 2011 after 24 years of serving as leaders there, I heard some strange words given to me as advice.

“Let us take your children all summer so that you can rest and renew your mission.”

“Our problems are none of your business.”

“You might be spiritually dead.”

“Since you are a director in UBF, just do your own ministry however you want, but remain connected to UBF.”

“Please come visit Chicago.”

“No one considers you an enemy.”

“May God bless you. Never send me emails again.”

“God bless your faith, but take me off your email list.”

“None of our coworkers are interested in what you have to say.”

“No one wants to hear what you are talking about.”

“Your issues would take years to discuss.”

“Maybe you could study Bible with [name remove] in Chicago.”

“Thank you for your many years of service. Good-bye.”

“I don’t know if breaking into someone’s house in 1990 was illegal or not, but it was for God’s glory.”

“Have mercy on us! Stop sending emails.”

“I don’t care about your secret.”
