I found this post today and it gave me an idea! Do not feel obligated to play along if you feel uncomfortable. I will not be offended. I just thought it would be interesting and maybe it would be something that would help me right now as I struggle through some issues with "church". So, here's my idea! (By the way, the post talks about large churches and I don't really have an issue with those; so please do not hold me to every view he has personally, okay?)
If you feel comfortable, please tell me1.) where you attend church (what denomination),2.) how you came to attend this particular denomination, 3.)what you love best about it, 4.)what you don't like about it (if anything!) and 5.)one of your favorite customs/practices of the church you attend.
I know you ladies will not leave ugly or spiteful comments about another's religion or denomination but, I am going to add that we are not going to debate theology! I just think it would be cool to see how the "bloggy" world unites us all! :o)
So, if you are game, leave a comment! If you don't want to participate, I totally understand!
Here's my stats : ( I may add more after I read everyone's answers )
1.) Church of Christ
2.) I was born into it. I am a 4th generation (maybe even further, I don't know)
3.) It's very family oriented.
4.) A lot of rigid, set in stone ways. Too much family, sometimes!
5.) We have communion (The Lord's Supper) every Sunday. I really like that time being set aside to honor Christ's sacrifice for us.
Blessings on your day, Julie
