Why is New England known for being spiritually dead..........or is America in general becoming spiritually dead (I had church-searching problems in OH too...people weren't as odd though)?
You go to one church and they emphasize the importance of a personal relationship with Christ and why we need to take care of the body of Christ; yet the opportunity to shine the light of Christ to the neighborhood where the church is located in is not seized.
You go to another church and they emphasize the importance of being the hands and feet in the local community, yet nothing is done to nourish those that are within the church.
You go to another church where the people are sweeter than southern style sweet ice tea, yet there's really no meat to the service.
And you go to another church where worshiping God is emphasized yet there is no teaching involved.
And then you go to another service where they teach and preach deep truths of Christ, yet they're as cold as ice at the north pole.
So the question is; where do I go? Do I go to the "sweet" church or the community outreach church and try and find a Bible study elsewhere? Do I go to the cold but solid church and try to find friends elsewhere (oh wait, one of the reasons I'm looking for a church is to have fellowship and find friends)?
And so my church journey continues. I've been told this process takes about a year. "Lord help me to be patient"
