(See below, if you’re wondering about the reference.)
I’ve been going to church for the last five or six years. I started out in a Methodist church and I liked that but they (the powers that be in the Methodist regional area) changed out the good minister for a bad minister and there went that church/religion.
I’ve been a member of an independent baptist church for the past couple of years. I was okay with that until I realized how conservative they are about religious and political views. Sorry, that’s not me.
I always said that I didn’t go to church because I didn’t like organized religion and, I’m afraid it is getting to be that way again. I am/was contemplating going to an Episcopalian church that’s close by but I have a feeling it will be the same thing– they will be more conservative than I am on politics and lifestyle.
So, I’m not going to attend church for awhile; I’ll see where that goes and go from there. I have always been a firm believer in “church” being in your heart and, since I still read my Bible and pray, I believe I go to church every day, several times a day, as a matter of fact.
