I’m sitting here in my pj’s on a Sunday morning just like any other Sunday morning.
But there’s something different. I don’t want to be relaxing today. I want to be doing. I want to be a part of something much larger than I.
I am really upset that I can’t find a church to be a part of here in NJ/PA. I don’t want to blind-date churches. I’ve been in bad long-term relationships with churches. I want a church match-maker to say to me, “Deneen, this is a great church for you to plant yourself in. Your gifts can add to the congregation in this way. The church will benefit you in this way.” If I had a match-maker, I would take his/her advice and see what’s going on.
Maybe I’m lazy. Maybe I just need this time of wanting to be a part of a church so that when I finally find a place to be planted, I’ll fully appreciate it. Maybe I’ve been hurt so deeply that I’ll never fully invest in a church again.
Or maybe I need to think outside of the box and check out an internet campus. Check.
