I can feel the emotion in the voice of the first person. It is the dreaded time in any church. Yes, vote, and let God do the rest. Amen.
This was heartwrenching to me - I so want to know if this is a true story. If not, of course, it is SOMEONE's true story, right? Excellent job with characterization, emotion, and laying out the issue in such a few number of words. ADORE the ending.
Excellent title, IMHO. I think God weeps when we divide the body of believers. This one made me squirm because I can relate to the situation.
It's sad when it comes to this. You've done a great job in writing this. I like this summary statement, "Our Church’s fate is reduced to a 5 by 7 piece of paper with two questions written on it". Very well done.
Amen! You did a great job with this entry.
You did a powerful job of building suspense and expressing the emotion of the moment. I felt a little disappointed at the conclusion perhaps because I didn't have a clear idea of what they were voting about. I felt a little description of the letter contents would add to the impact.Still, your use of imagery and the ability to transport the reader into the moment was excellent.
