So, I've had the managing directorship of a non-denominational interfaith/pagan church dropped in my lap, and I have no idea what to do with it. The
church has had it's ups and downs over the years, and came close to extinction twice, and now I've had it handed over to me because the job needed
doing and nobody else would do it. I've found that many of the problems the organization has had over the years have resulted from the formation of
personality cults, and the abuse of power for personal agendas amongst the board and clergy. All this is now, thankfully, in the past, but I've got a
mess to work with. Membership is a faint shadow of what it was, the whole thing is a beauraucratic nightmare, and everybody wants the church to serve
their needs, but nobody wants to put any effort into the needs of the church. At this point, I'm at a loss. Part of me wants to rebuild and
restructure to avoid the problems of the past, and another part of me just wants to let it die in peace. Any ideas on what I should do?
