God stuff

For quite some time, Greg and I have been searching for a new church home. In fact, we've only been to the church he grew up in maybe twice since we've been married. The reasons are varied, but the fact of the matter is, we are longing to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, and we have yet to find it. 

In the meantime, we've been joining in a bible study every Sunday night with some others from his old church who are in the same situation. It is a great group of people, and it's been pretty rewarding thus far. Tonight was especially exciting as we all shared some experiences about what we've seen in other churches and what we're looking for in a new church family.

For the past few months, Greg and I have experienced lots of new churches. Last night was an epiphany of sorts for both of us. First of all, we went to a Saturday evening church was a little bit different. But, more importantly, we realized that going to church shouldn't be about the pomp and circumstance that we're used to in worship. Instead, it should be about celebration and joy, for Jesus gave the ultimate sacrifice for us.
