I thought I'd throw it out there for anybody who might be interested.
Below is the story I was given for the release:
I have been GD teacher for four years.
I have been HP secretary for about a year, as well.
I live about 200-yards outside the ward boundary.
The newly called stake presidency understands the situation sufficiently to not make a mindless dictate that we have to attend the ward in whose boundaries we live.
But strangely has dictated that we can have only one calling. It was between GD teacher and HP secretary. One of the callings had to go.
The HP group leader went on and on about how wonderful I am as a secretary.
The bishop was persuaded.
End of story.
So, that was the "official version" I was told by my bishop, which I was happy enough to accept.
Then I started tumbling to some other information yesterday.
1. I found out that our ward Sunday school president has resigned his post because my release, together with the call of the new teacher, happened behind his back without his being consulted or even notified.
2. The new GD teacher is a former member of the stake presidency, which was just released, and who happens to be a good friend of mine. He wants to include me in a missionary preparation series of presentations he has done in the past (which I think is nice of him though it sounds like a bone being thrown), and he came over last night to talk about it with me. Toward the end of our discussions, he said that he had gotten the okay from the new stake president, but that he had to assure the new stake president that I wouldn't be teaching any "strange" things to the youth; the way he put it was he had to tell the new stake president that if I started trying to "triangulate the position of Kolob," he would report me. He meant it as a joke, and was surprised I wasn't laughing.
I started to wonder if he, like Hagrid, had said something he shouldn't have.
I shared this with my wife later last night, and she began to get upset. She said she was going to "do something" about this. I asked her what she had in mind. She declined to share. (Picture consiglieri starting to get worried.) I told her it didn't make any difference to me, and that I would rather she not do anything. She was not dissuaded. I told her that she might want to make sure of her facts before doing anything. She just repeated that she was going to "do something." I tried to talk to her more about how this wasn't a big deal, but she told me she didn't want me to talk about it anymore because it was just making her more upset.
So now that I am waiting for the other shoe to drop, I thought I would post this to see if anybody has any comments or advice.
All the Best!
