Good morning guys. I'm sorry for disappearing o! It couldn't be helped. I left Asaba for PH yesterday evening and I thought I shouldn't bother blogging till I've gotten a full night of sleep. For the last four days or so I was being woken up at 4.30am and I was never able to go to bed before 1am, and all day we were on our feet. BUT I'm here now, I'm rested and I missed you guys.
This morning I have a question those who are or have been Church Workers. So here's the thing, some years ago the thought of being a church worker freaked me out, I couldn't think of anything worse. Not because I was the world's greatest sinner but becasue that level of commitment to the church turned my belly. To me it meant frequent meetings, being unable to miss service without being interrogated, mixing with people I had no interest in mixing with, being unable to
sin act freely, not being able to leave town whenever I wanted, not being able to leave the church if/when I wanted without a group of people coming to my doorstep to ask why... and a lot of other factors. It was the last thing I ever thought I'd want to be.
However some weeks back I began to want nothing more than to be a church worker. Quite unlike me I didn't think and think and overthink before making my decision, I actually went right to the church office and informed them of my decision. I knew I'd have to do some courses/take some classes for about six months before I can become one and I'm fully prepared, unfortunately I was told that I'm too late to join the present class and wouldn't be able to begin till the next batch starts in February/March 2015.
So my question is this, in your experience or to the best of your knowledge, What are the pros and cons of being a church worker?
I ask this because while it's the very air some people breathe, some others have told me some sordid experiences they had as a result of being a church worker. Now they say; it's better to just do your own thing, go to church, pray, go home. Once you start getting involved with church work so many unpleasantness gets in the mix.
Can anyone help out here?
