This happened some time ago. It is a post that I randomly predated. All I will say is that it didn’t happen this month and it wasn’t someone from Tapestry.

today a person I don’t know real well insisted on calling me “Pastor Robert” even though I asked them to just call me “Robert.” This person said she/he just wanted to honor me and it wouldn’t be honorable to just call me by my name. I decide it wasn’t worth continuing to correct him/her and just said okay. What I wanted to say was “isn’t it more honoring to call me what I want to be called rather than what you think I should be called?” Anyhow it doesn’t really matter because I only see this person every few months. Just funny how the idea of honoring someone can be used in a way that doesn’t show honor.
