So we tried the new church. It is another Mega church but we are going to give it a chance. For us, it is a huge change. You see, we grew up Southern Baptist and this is a Catholic church. So far, much of what I learned growing up about the church is wrong. Everything was biblical based. All the Scriptures read were familiar as was the lesson taught. Clean and unclean food.
The music was different, the formality was new, the fancy robes and candles. Very different but I think different is a good thing. What I didn't hear preached was hate.
I think we will go back next week and take the kids.
Now for the hard part. How to tell the family!
You see, Baptists don't think too much of Catholics or any other denomination for that matter. The topic of Sunday school lessons, discussions and sermons is often the evils of other faiths. I saw many Mormons driven away from churches I have attended because of this.
I couldn't understand it. Still don't. That could be why I so rarely go to church at all.
I think for now I'll leave the topic alone. I'll just say that we are going to church this Sunday and had a very good lesson. Is that all that needs to be said? I thinks so. For now anyway. When we get ready to join the church it will be time to "come out of the closet"
on my todo list. A Catholic song book. I would love to have some sheet music. And learn every thing I can about it!
He is still improving. Not back to 100% but getting there. He dropped a lot of weight last week but that is a good thing. He was getting fat. I have hope. We may still have to put him down but not today.
