I have a plan. It's realistic, necessary and, for once, I have people helping me out in achieving it.
It will hopefully get me back to worshipping in a church with a compassionate priest who can help me ditch some of the incredible anger and feelings of betrayal I am experiencing at the moment, which are making it impossible for me to get a job as I'm not very good at hiding my emotions. I am hoping that one day I will be able to preside in a church again. Being the stupid optimist that I am, I am even hoping that one day I will be allowed to be a real priest with responsibilities of my own and get paid for it.
It also involves moving out of my home for the past nine years (obviously, as the Bishop of Newcastle has decided it is time that the diocese stopped providing me with free accommodation and my last ditch attempt to get the Archdeacon to try and persuade him otherwise failed miserably as he agrees with the bishop).
Mrs MP can afford to pay the mortgage on a cheap house but we would have no money left over to live on. Many of you are being very generous in supporting me through monthly donations but I never did achieve the level of financial support that I need to use OCICBW... as the basis of a ministry that will keep our heads above water.
Therefore, I need to ask for your help again. If you are in a position to donate, even a small amount, to my work on a monthly basis, and you feel that you would like to, please consider using one of the choices below to do so. In return I promise to snap out of feeling sorry for myself and start to rebuild my life which will then be able to include all you, my good friends down the other end of the internet tubes.
