Here is an email from Kelly Gable to Lorna Worley about this conflict. While it’s characteristically verbose, it’s interesting in that Kelly takes a much more rational approach than most members of St. Dysfunction, and avoids the usual ad hominem attacks.
There’s also a notable reference to transparency in the email. As I’ve said many times, one big issue for the parish is transparency. Bob loves the whole, “Well, I see the financials,” routine, as if that is somehow reassuring, or absolves vestry members of their fiduciary obligations under the law. Meanwhile, it’s hard to retain members when they feel, as evinced here, that there only job is to keep their mouth shut, worship, and send money.
