So my husband and I were discussing that this is the month of our one year anniversary of NOT attending church. Although I did stop a month or so before he did... because he had a calling and would actually show up to do it.
But yes. It was the month of May where we finally stopped going altogether. We haven't been back since. And we have no desire to return.
That hasn't stopped my visiting teachers however. I still get myriad phone calls, messages, gifts, etc. One time, I was approached about visiting teaching at my job (I work at a library). But yeah, I don't know what to say or do. I'm thinking about writing them an email and just asking them to stop contacting me.
The trouble is they are very nice people after all. Just trying to do their best as they try to navigate this freaked up religion as best they know how. After all, their salvation is contingent upon mine.
I just want to put this behind me. It is difficult though when I get little presents at my door which include messages from leaders in the church, past and present, that talk about how scripture study is the best thing ever. How do you drop the VTs?
Suggestions and ideas would be most appreciated. I would like to do something that doesn't involve me going on a tirade about the church to them.
