Fast Food From the God Box
One of our New Years Resolutions as a growing family was to start going to Church again. With the Husband graduating from college this year will bring upon us many choices and chances for development. To grow together as a family we need to water all the areas for intellectual, physical, spiritual, social and emotional growth. Regardless of what faith you practice, fellowship with like-minded others provides encouraging and inspiring living water to quench your thirst for growth.

Take all of your values and habits and hold them up to your own personal growth chart. You may have done this already when considering the making of your New Years Resolutions. I'm sure you will or have already discovered that:

a) some are good and just need to be reaffirmed;
b) some are inconsistent and need to be reinforced;
c) some are underdeveloped and need to be refined;
d) some are harmful and need to be put away.

So off to church we went this morning. We pondered over whether we should go to the church we belonged to over two years ago or a new one. We decided on a new one because we outgrown our old church when we became a family. The main reason we stopped going was due to the lack of children services.

Although apprehensive there is always a bit of excitement when going to a new place for the first time. Whether it be a new college, job, community or church. You come as your are, find yourself welcomed then soon find yourself asked, "Where have you been?."

Next week they'll ask, "How have you been?"

I look forward to next week.

    We need to get back to church as well. It's an easy habit to get out of, but we both miss it. Funny, we tend to go more when we're out of town than when we're home.

    You would just love the church we tried last week. It has all kinds of things for children and family. The kids just seemed to love the pastor. I hope you have found your new church home.

    GREAT post! And just in time for ME! I'm heading to a new Church (and new denomination) this coming Sunday! I'm excited ... and apprehensive. But I only have to find the one that's right for ME. I'm hoping this is it!

    Margie, Hope you found a church you like.

    But if it doesn't work for you, you might try Seacoast. Meets in a movie theater. Great band. Fun stuff for the kids. Challenging messages. Lots of younger folks. Might be worth giving a whirl.
