Hmmm.... Im at Day 5 out of 6 at work and I am doing ok! Michael wrote a post on our church experience and how he felt. For the last few years, Michael and I have been looking for a traditional church. I miss hymns. I miss the experience I had as a child. I want those memories for my child. Then I started thinking, what I want most of all is to worship my God to enjoy the experience. I feel like I have put a rule on how I want to worship. Not cool. I want to be able to worship him anywhere. I have seen Him move in churches, in families at work and through friends.
My God wants me to focus on my relationship with Him. I do agree with Michael that there are churches that seem to spend more money on the church advertising and not on the people on the church. These are things I have read in the media. These are not things I know of first hand. Our society has changes and will continue to change. As Steven pointed out, each person that comes to know Christ is a celebration. I had never been to a church that had all of this video stuff before the baptistism, and it did feel odd. I think thats just because I had never experienced it.
I want a church. I want a community of friends who are believers. I want fellowship. I desire a small group. I want many things.
There are people who read out blogs that are not believers or who do not feel the same way I do. I almost want to protect my writing so I will not offend anyone. I am not ashamed of my desires or my faith and I am glad that I have met so many cool people online and have gotten so much encouragement. I hope that I can encourage people who have shown encouragement to me.
Michael and I want to go back and visit. I want to have an open mind. Sooo many people have recommended this church and there is such a wonderful small group opportunity there.
Pray for us!!
On another note, many patients tonight tried to tell me what happenned in Shrek the third!! I was able to avoid any spoilers!!!
