A recent church-shopping experience has got me asking about what it means to find a church home.
What do we go to church for, anyway? Are we going to find a place where we will feel welcomed and spiritually challenged? Or we going to find a place where we can make a difference?
When a friend nearby posted pictures of the pet blessing at her Episcopal congregation, I got church envy. Should I try a new denomination? Would I miss the Lutheran theology I’d come to love? Did it even matter?
The search is still on, and I’m sure the Spirit will guide me where I need to be. What makes your congregation the right choice for you? What would you look for if you had to find another?
