You guys are the only AP Christian Moms I know of. It is sad that I can only contact you via the internet..but at least I know you are here somewhere.
Right now I ma having a faith crisis of sorts.I cannot find A church I fit into..I have not cracked my Bible open in so long ...I have no clue how I got here or how to get out of this funk I am in.
I have tried three churches in the last year...nol uck. I even joined one..but mainly did so out of a sense of family duty.Now I never even attend.
The other church used ezzo materials and I felt a strong sense of Cliques going on.The third church..I just don't feel like I belong, you know? I also do not care for the Pastor.
So now, here I am,surrounded by dozens of churches and totally clueless where to even begin. I want my son to grow up and have friends with other kids who are being raised christian..and I want Christian friends myself..
I really hate the fact that I am "church shopping". I feel really bad going into the places and wacthing and waiting and searching for the "just right one" for our family.
My husband does not believe in anything..so he could care less where we go.
I also have decided I am really out of the Loop. I hear a lot of talk amongst Christians using words I NEVER heard of in my old Presbyterian church growing up. I sometimes feeli like there is this whole"other " chrisitianity that I just don't understand....
I also had a LOT of bad experiances in Florida with those "speaking in toungues/pentecostal/etc type churches. They SCARED me and made me drop my religion like a hot potato for amny years. I was completely NOT interested in that form of worship..and thinking about it still makes me scared and want to hide under something until it all goes away.
I do prefer a more quiet sort of service...anything else and I begin to get very frightened and want to just leave as soon as possible.
I don't know what I am going to do! But I am glad to know there are women here who believe in Gd and who I can talk to about these things!!!!
