    I Don't Know Why..

    I don't know why I'm so afraid of church.  I'm not afraid of God or prayer.  Every time I have gone to a church I get freaked out and an overwhelming almost, scared/anxious feeling.  I remember going to a Sunday School class when I was real small, probably 5 or 6...

    I grew up in the church, going like 3-4 times a week for 20 years. Now I don't believe most of the things I came to accept as fact. I'd say I'm on the edge of agnosticism.
