I spent some time this morning filling out an application for the role of Administration Assistant at our local Methodist Church. Before I filled it out, I spent some time researching the Methodist Church, their structure and beliefs and I found it really fascinating.
I'm Roman Catholic by upbringing and practice, but have always baulked at the paternalistic and dictatorial ethos. In the recent past I went along to Quaker worship for a while, but I missed the singing too much (I've heard others say they missed hymn singing too).
My previous post was in a faith-based organisation, which brought me in to contact with folk from many different faiths. My belief is that God loves us no matter what name we attach to him/her. I don't believe anyone has the right to dictate to me based on their gender or mine. The bible says we are all made in God's image. If you take that literally, then God is polygender.
The job advertised is part time (tick), local (tick), has a reasonable pay-rate (tick) and community-focused (tick). I hope they like my application, because they'd be getting a dedicated individual with decades of experience.
Closing date for applications is 28 November, with interviews around 12 December. Fingers crossed / prayers said x
