Part of the human conundrum is the fact that we are often self-centered, worried about how something might affect only us. Even in the church (especially in the church!) this plays out in various ways, as the above remarks make clear. But the fact is that the Church was never intended to be all about “me” or even all about “us.” It has always had as its mission “all about others.”
Excellent article entitled "Holding the Church Hostage" that should be read by all members of the congregation. This can be a heart breaking (and sometimes church breaking) situation. Each side should spend time in prayer before making or reacting to such statements. Power plays often backfire.
