We may have found it. We’re going to visit at least one more, but we may have found the church we were looking for. We got our socks challenged off during the message, and the first two songs from worship were To Deserve and My God (both songs we did at either FC or UC), and the rest were really great and the folks absolutely loved on us and welcome us. There’s a really ingrained culture there (which takes years to create), and I really think it’s going to challenge us as well as make us feel at home.
The struggle for us is going to be plugging in at a local church and getting under their spiritual authority while still doing some traveling to visit folks at home and lead worship for churches here and there. The other struggle is the distance – we don’t have a problem driving, it’s just hard to connect when you’re not a part of the local community – maybe they have connect groups in this part of town.
More to come later…
