I want to apologize to all who has seen my rant of attending F&T meeting and going off. Well, I can't wait that long. I put pen to paper and figured it would take too long to sell my stuff and move away. I need too much time. I am so pissed off everyday for being in TSCC I want to scream. More and more evidence of a sham. I will share my letter I am mailing today.
I have revised my out letter several times, from being a bitch to the morg.-letting them know what is what, to trying a more gentle approach. I hope it hits home for someone out there? here goes:
23 August, 2017
To whom it may concern:
Recently our ward was dissolved into 3-4 other wards. I have been greatly offended by the OBVIOUS lack of divine guidance as to where the ward was divided. I was told it is what it is and that is how it is. It is and was a very bad idea to draw a line in the sand and take no one's situation into account. Very ruthless treatment to the members , especially the disabled and elderly.
Speaking for myself, I live less than a mile from the old WR1st building. NOW, I am told I have to drive over 15 miles, one way, to a building to attend my NEW ward. I WILL NOT! I am 3 houses below the new boundary line. So, I am told, If I do not go there, I will not be able to pay tithing or hold a calling. I have been alienated from ALL my friends. They are in other wards. I have no family other than church family and now you have ripped it from my life.
After 40 years of being a member and being told I HAVE to attend my new building, you may remove my name from you roster.
My car is old and I do not and will not drive on the highway.
This is the ONLY church that cares where you attend.
Several elderly in the ward were moved like sheep to other buildings far away as well. The B******, Chris and Barb, have several health issues that were not taken into account dividing up the ward. He has had brain cancer and cannot drive. Barb has health issues as well including her vision. Now she has to drive
15 miles, one way, to a new building. They were less than 5 minutes from the old ward building. Also, the Haney's. They both don't drive really, but she drives when they go anywhere. She has had surgery on both knees and isn't supposed to drive. They now have to drive over 10 miles one way to their new ward. They were less than 5 minutes from the old building.
There are other elderly who live a few blocks from the building who walked to church. Now they are in a ward 15 miles away. NOBODY is going to drive from 15 miles away, into town to pick up folks and return the trip. That is 60 miles for someone and their car. NOBODY is going to do that.
If this is how you are going to treat the elderly then I want out. I can't even get help mowing my front yard!
Winter's are bad around here and I don't see the older folks driving 30+ miles round trip. The other folks I mentioned, they are older than me and live less than 5 minutes from the old building as well. Absolutely NO consideration for the elderly what so ever. Shame on you all!
I resign effective immediately.
DONE, DONE, AND DONE SOME MORE!!!!!
