What to do
The bishop sent a guy by the house with a newsletter and greetings. He asked if needed help with anything as he had the young men who needed service projects. Now I used to participate in those service projects where we visited the elderly and did things around their yards. So this offer struck me on a couple of levels. 1) Am I now considered elderly and worthy of help from youngsters in the ward? 2) If I have no intention of going to church, is it wrong to accept help? And will this encourage them to think I might be open to returning? I don't want that. 3) Do I really want help? After all, I do like saying I take care of my huge yard all by myself. (Such a braggart, really!) Anyway, I mentioned that I'm gettiing some bark delivered in a few weeks and he offered to bring some boys by to help move it. Boy, that would sure be nice. It really would. But would I be accepting help on false pretenses? It's a dilemma. But the decision may now be out of my hands. If I get the bark delivered, they will probably just show up. *Sigh* What to do?
