    I'm going to let you know right

    now this is going to be very long. I've grown up and church, so I know everything there is to know about it. But I've never actually experienced it. I have on occasions, but only twice that I can think of right now. The second time was very recent, Wednesday actually. It was at...

    I go to church. I'm the only one in my family

    who does and they don't approve and they think I think it makes me better than them. So they think I'm being a hypocrite but I don't go for that reason. I go because I love God and he loves me. I cry a lot in church cos there's always something said that's like God talking to me...

    Church has been such a blessing in my life.

    It wasn't until I strayed away from the church for a while that I noticed I really needed to be there to sustain my everyday life and live accordingly. I love God, I love Church but I really love my church family !!!

    I didn't understand attending church

    as a kid. It was boring to me and I was too young to understand most of what the preacher said. However,now I could not be more grateful for church. I have quite a few less than holy things that happen around me and I try to stay out of it but it's hard. Attending church is my...

    I Enjoy It.

    I feel a little lost when too much time passes and I haven't been to church. There's not an exact formula, but I know when I've missed too much. The other day I wound up taking a personal half-day from work and bursting into the church at one-thirty on Wednesday afternoon. I know...

    for the first time in about three years. I'm nervous and excited at the same time.. I think my boyfriend has agreed to go with me, so I hope he sticks to it. The only thing I was nervous about was mainly just going by myself. The church I'm going to is a Christian non...

    Restless Mind In The Process Of Great And Exciting Transition

    They Make Me

    I spend around two months with my parents every year. The rest of the year, I'm overseas. My dad's an ordained priest. He doesn't know I gave up on religion a few years ago. So for about eight or nine weeks a year, I go to Bible study every Saturday, and Mass every Sunday...

    Sway

    Last Sunday I found myself at a different church. I usually go to the one next door to the library with the nutty priest who makes me laugh. But, my Nana ( who's recently moved to an area nearby) insisted we go to the one nearer her. So I agreed and of we went. Now, my normal...

    The Apparent Gravitational Pull of Church... :

    My church story is half-romantic, half depressing, and you really need to know my whole story for me not to look like a sap, but I guess this isn't the time to get to that. I was raised in the catholic church, and stayed relatively faithful to the religion for most of my life...

    Church of Christ.

    So growing up my grandparents always went to the same church. Then as I grew up I would go every now and then. Then I was 15 I met my boyfriend. He would ask me to go as much as I could. When I finally did, It turned out to be my grandparents church. So then...

    Yes.

    Often. It goes hand in hand with praying ... daily. I believe we need, I need a fellowship community and a one-on-one relationship with God.

    Mass Has Changed Recently

    About 2 years ago I changed churches for various reasons. I suppose one of those was because I preferred the priest at the new one. He had a joke about everything and he always encouraged us all to go out into the world with a smile and a candle for those who need it. He...

    My preacher was promoted today.

    He is a Chaplain in the Army and he was promoted to Major. Cool huh? The last couple of weeks his sermons have been military based. He says there are three rules all branches abide by. He says 1) always keep the mission first 2) never except defeat 3) never quit... He took them...
