I’m in a dilemma. Can’t honestly put my finger on why but here’s the deal. I belong to a large church. Fine people. Great staff. My pastor and assistant pastor have both shown me to be men of integrity and good character.
The problem is connection. I connect well with my Sunday school class. They are faithful, humble, eager, and willing to indulge in conversation. We are able to discuss the Bible without argument. Seems we respect each others freedom to express viewpoints.
However, I don’t connect well with the sanctuary worship hour. Messages are biblical. Music is blended. Services are relevant. So how is it I don’t feel a part of what is going on?
I know part of the issue is my employment requires my presence on two Sundays out of four. Wednesday evening are the same way. My wife is often called away because of our business in another town.
Course I don’t agree with everything my church does but I doubt very seriously I ever well. No such church truly exists.
So how do I get connected? Is it me, the church, some aspect of it, or is this God’s way of getting me to consider a move?
What say ye?
