Church...not so blergh after all
I mentioned in my previous post that Angie and I were trying a new church today. We did and it went well.
I was feeling like I didn't want to do this at all. I had a whole list of reasons why I didn't feel like starting over with a new church.
Then Angie said:
"This isn't really about us."
Why does she has to be so simply right sometimes? It's annoying.
We went to the Grandview Christian Assembly and we'll be going back. Not because it was super awesome, but mostly because it wasn't so terrible that I forgot it wasn't about me. It seemed earnest enough and it didn't have the smooth varnish of fakery that the last try did.
Not to make it sound like just a collection of not-too-terrible attributes. It was good and I don't mean to sell it short, but I have become very critical of churches and I am trying to be fair.
The people did truly seem like nice people trying to grow in their relationship with Jesus, and that's the most important thing.
Plus, apparently, this whole worshiping God thing isn't about me and sometimes it means doing what your wife says.
