This is the key. Does it sound to you like the WL recognizes your calling, that you have something to contribute as your friends say? Believe me if you are getting the run around now, do you think that you are going to be able to develop and express your gifts with an unsupportive WL? You asked what we thought- I think if you continued down this path that you'll just end up frustrated. You need to find a place where you really do fit in. I left a church that burnt me and I looked around for a new home for a long time; a church that would recognize my gifts, talents and calling, and support me in developing them. Their was one church I liked to visit, they had a good worship team, I liked the Pastor... I liked the way they "did" church, it seemed like a good fit, but they didn't need me. They already had 6 electric guitar players. The team I'm with now was a really good veteran team, but they had no electric guitar player and not enough men.
