Now that was a little dramatic, wasn't it?
It's sort of correct, though. The bishop of the local ward came and paid Derrick and I a visit last night. We let him know where we stand and told him that we wanted to remove ourselves from the records of the church. He was very polite and diplomatic about it and said that if we did send him our resignation letters he would start the process for us.
Now I just need to have that conversation with my parents. Ugh. That's going to be an ugly one.
