Learning to Love
By Stacey Campbell
If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.
John 14:15 NASB
I sat there, stunned. Surrounded by our friends and co-workers,
my husband, Wesley, and I heard their words, but were in-
credulous at what they were saying.
“We all want you to resign. Here’s the paper for you to sign.”
These friends and co-workers, some of whom I had walked
with for over twenty years, were rejecting me wholesale.
“Just sign the paper and we will make the public announce-
ment this week.”
The following week was anguish. I thought of everything God
had ever spoken to me about this place. About all the dreams
we had seen come true in the last 22 years since we founded the
church. I thought about my children and the devastating impact it
would have on them to be thrust forcibly from the only spiritual
home they had ever had. They were born and raised, dedicated
and baptized with these people. And in one week, it was over.
Brother against brother. Wounded in the house of friends.
In the weeks that followed, I watched the camps form. I over-
heard my children’s teenage friends saying, “I’m never going
back to that place after what they did to you.” I saw bitter roots
all around me, even in my own heart. And everywhere, the roots
were producing fruits. Division was rampant.
The shot was heard around the world. People were calling
to ask, “What did you do that was so bad that they fired you?”
Explanation after explanation, recounting the painful story
over and over, like a bad record. I watched people around me
move into despair, hopelessness and disillusionment. It was
intensely painful because it affected not just me.
