Thanks, Lisa!

I’m always thankful for intriguing comments. Dalia and Lisa never fail to get me thinking. πŸ™‚


I have left FT feeling sad, definitely — but sad in the sense that encountering God in corporate worship tore a necessary hole in my protective layer. Pain laced with a deeper joy.

Since I left I have walked out of many a church feeling uninspired and incredibly alone. I feel where Ms B is coming from there. It’s a struggle to figure out when you should walk away from a church like that, and when you should stick around to make things better.

Lisa wrote this in response to my church-suckage post–see below. It reminded me of a few things:

1. Back in the day, I used to hate the idea of church. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATE.

“People shouldn’t have to get together to worship God.  I have a brain. I have a Bible or two or ten…What more do I need…?”

Oh, to be young and naive again.  Corporate worship, in the right environment, can work wonders for your soul and mind.

2. Walking away vs hanging on.  This reminds me of someone in my family who recently started going to church again. And I think she should keep going…Dear One, I don’t know if you’re reading this post, but from the sound of things, they need your insight!!!
