Church Hunt

Another church hunt began yesterday after being planted in a church for 6 months. It turned out that church was filled with lies or just plain apathy, and all we could see was hurt and more hurt. It became an awful situation so we decided this was God's way of nudging us to move on... and so it begins again.

I really *dislike* searching for a church. It's really hard to find the right balance of teaching for adults and our children. There is also the music thing and the safety of our children thing to watch out for. The last church saw no reason to keep our children safe. In fact, it got so out of hand that we almost watched as Lizzy climbed a 7 foot ladder unassisted as her teachers just watched from a distance. I know there is no perfect church, but we know there are so many that are way under par an unacceptable by even a non believer.

We did visit a brand new church within walking distance of our house. Dr. Ravi Zacharias spoke as a grand opening speaker, and that night a group called Leeland did a concert. The kinds and adults alike enjoyed the service, and we'll have to visit again on a normal church day as opposed to a grand opening Sunday. It seems promising - especially the walking distance from home part!

Pray for us as we go through another change. It's no fun to search for a new church.
