I go back and forth with this quite often. There are times when I really feel as though I need to go to church more often and lead a more spiritually and faith-focused life, whereas other times when I feel as though the whole thought of it all stresses it out way more than it improves my life. So, I’m in and out, back and forth, up and down, all over the place. Chad and I have kind of been going to Sandals church in Riverside, but I miss having communion like at Catholic masses and it is just so “commercial” to me. However, I love the messages that the pastor has – they are always so clear, simple, and touching. I feel that his messages get through to me and I enjoy how simple they are. That is their mantra, “Be real with other, be real with yourself, be real with God,” or something like that. And their messages are simply about how to really live your life being real, which I like. However, it is really hard to see myself becoming a regular parishioner at that church…for some reason of which I am not really sure. In any case, I think I am happy right now with leaving this goal up just as a little reminder that I do enjoy church and that I should go more often, but I just don’t want to stress out about it. If I go, I go. If I don’t, I don’t. I pretty much feel as though I am a good person who does good things and yet is sorry for the sins I commit and will own up to them. I feel as though, for the most part, I am a good Christian, and I need to find a way to be satisfied with it. ...more thoughts on this at a later date… 2 years ago
