Laid off

Andrew Jones was laid off by Church Mission Society today which is a difficult blow at anytime but especially during this time of global economic duress.

The Tall Skinny Kiwi, Andrew Jones Anyway. Its a hard thing to receive a redundancy letter, despite how nice your employer has been about it. Its like getting dumped by a girlfriend. Its a blow to your ego. It whispers insulting challenges to your accomplishments, It highlights the ‘dunce’ part of ‘redundancy’ when you say the word too many times in the same sentence.

You can support his ministry and the Jones family over on his blog and of course pray for God’s provision for them and their continued ministry. via

One thought on “Laid off”

  1. It’s absolutely rubbish being made redundant, but you need to see this as a positive thing not a negative thing. It’s happened for a reason, whether or not we are aware of what that reason is. After I was made redundant, I was unemployed for two months which was a worrying time, bit it enabled me to step back, and find out about what I enjoyed and disliked about my last job.

    I love my new job! It’s working with content management systems (CMS’s) – that’s the bit I liked about my last job, but the rest of it wasn’t that fun.

    So in a nutshell, I’m glad I was made redundant, even if I was inconsoleable at the time!
