It's all good!

After I left the church I'd been attending for ten years or so, there was time that I just didn't want to commit to any other church. I wanted to go very slowly. I didn't want to stay away from church forever, but I wanted to be patient. And the simple fact is that the things that made me unhappy in my old church were common to many churches. I was determined to watch and wait. Well, the neat thing is that now I'm somehow attached to two different churches at once: the one I've been attending on Sunday mornings (well, to be honest, I've been attending some Sunday mornings), and the other is a brand-new church-plant that exists as yet only as a small group who study the Bible together. The first is a Harvest Bible Chapel, and the church-plant is a Southern Baptist church called Christ Fellowship. I've been incredibly blessed by both of these. Sheesh, how He blesses us! I'm feeling gently and lovingly nudged. Hey, over here! Look at me! So I just wanted to say that. There are people everywhere lifting up the name of Jesus, dedicated to revealing the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. That's pretty cool. I'm listening to Frank Viola's Epic Jesus talk on itunes just now. What an inspiring message! It's all good!
