This afternoon I received an email from our church inviting us to “Fun, Food and Fellowship.” Thinking it sounded interesting, I dove in to learn more. It was an invitation to join a ministry at our church called, Chapter 2. I had never heard of the ministry, so looked it up on our church’s website. I guess it is a new group for those starting the second chapter of their lives and focuses a lot on outreach. Sounds cool. But I couldn’t figure out how I had gotten on the email list.
Then it hit me. My hubby just turned 50 a few weeks ago, and our church has a database that lists each of our birthdays, so we automatically got added to the Chapter 2 group’s email list. Then I remembered that I had received an email from this same group several weeks ago. While they sound like a great group, I didn’t want them to get their hopes up, and I don’t need any extra messages to sort through, so I searched for an unsubscribe button.
At the bottom of the message I found a note that said to reply with, “Remove,” in the subject line and they would stop sending us messages. So this is the message I sent.
Thanks so much for connecting with us, as this sounds like an awesome ministry that I think I would very much enjoy being a part of in the future. However, as we still have young kids, we are sort of still in Chapter 1 – we got a kind of late start. I guess you could say we are slow readers:)Best,Heather

Great way to say it!
We did that, too. I like to say we did it in God’s time, not ours. 😉
