Grandma will be so proud

For a long time, I have been pretty happy with my relationship with my God. I knew that I needed to find a "spiritual home", I also knew that I wanted to get Conner into a place where he could feel like he was comfortable learning, growing in and questioning his faith. Just like my Grandma's church was for my sister and I as we were growing up.

I had gone to Central Christian for a while about 3 years ago, but you know schedules and the baby and all that good stuff got in the way.
When we moved to the new house, I was so happy that Central is only about 4 blocks away.

I started going at the end of September and last Sunday, came before the pastors and church to request a transfer of my membership. It felt great. Of course when I was saying my pledge of faith, I got a little choked up and almost cried in front of the whole congregation but-eh, what are you going to do.

Central Christian is a Disciple of Christ church, and that "branch" of CHristianity is known to be more open minded and liberal (if you can even be that when it comes to church) then most religions. While it is certainly not the most free-spirited, it seems to fit perfectly with my beliefs.

The pastors are great, and that is important for me. They are both young(er) and have a way of talking to you during the sermon instead of at you.

I know for a lot of you, this isn't your thing, but for those of you who kinda feel the same. Keep us in your prayers that we continue to grow spiritually, that Conner gets a great support system there, and that, eventually, I can get Adam to come with me.

(Can you believe he hasn't come once?-ass)

  1. I really should read your blog more often.... I knew you joined church - my mom told me- but I didn't know I could comment on it. :-) Anyway - I'm really thrilled - and wish I could be going there too so we could see you more often. Oh well- maybe next weekend......
