Really I’m sort of posting on the back of another thread and a response, but Ididnt want to hijack.
One or two of you may remember me posting about this little club I belong to. I really enjoy the activity and I don’t want to give it up but.....
Two years ago a lady moved into the area and joined the club. She is a friendly, confident person and very socially active and soon after joining extended invitations to barbecues, lunches, Christmas drinks etc
Lovely I wish I could be like her. She’s become a popular, central member of the club.
After a while she started using the social activities as a springboard for inviting people to her Church, Bible studies, church based activities like concerts. I got ruffled because I thought I was being invited to, say, lunch and it turned into a bit of evangelism. since then Ive turned down invitations but, of course I see her at the club, and now she has started to promote her church activities there.
Why am I ruffled today? Well last night she invited people to a Fashion Show. For charity. Which charity I asked? Well it was a birth charity. Which one? A pregnancy advice charity. Which one? A militant anti abortion group.
It’s the lack of transparency. The deception dare I call it. I said I couldn’t support bullying and intimidation! She was very cross.
But to get back to the start. Now I feel I can’t go back to the club. It’s sort of become her club and several people are going to the Fashion Show. I do like what we do at the club. but I feel embarrassed about going to the next club meeting.
