  1. My current church is not "enough". I am being called to a more historical sacramental church. I am not going to argue with God. that is all.
  2. My family is kind of like a square peg and we often encounter "round hole" situations where we don't fit in. I realized once again at a church function this afternoon that we really need to find a way where we can force ourselves to fit without compromising who we are. I'm in tears and ready to leave my church (where we've been for only a year), but I hate to uproot my kids again because it seems like a cycle where we'll be looking again in another year or so. My heart is really hurting about this. :( Anyone find that their family is like this and have found solutions on how to work in situations where you feel you just don't fit?
  3. Someone in my church passed this very interesting article along to me today. I love the article because I think it gives great food for thought. Before posting this, I searched to see if it had already been posted here. While I haven't seen this, I did see that Susan Cain's book and her talk on TED has already been linked (another source I was going to mention, but now I won't :D). I am posting this here for one main reason - to help those that are introverts not feel guilty at church and to maybe experience the freedom in Christ that might be difficult in such an extroverted society and church. As an INTJ, sometimes I feel guilty that my worship isn't as "worshipful" as others because I do NOT like to raise my arms or clap my hands. I like to really think about the words I'm singing, determine if they're true of me, and sing them in my heart to the Lord. My worship can be very powerful for me, but sometimes I think, since so many in my church will raise their hands or arms, that maybe I come off as arrogant or not as "spiritual," even though in my head I know that is silly and simply untrue. In addition to the point that introverts are most likely to come in to church service late in order to avoid the "meet and greet" portion (Yes! That is SO ME), I especially love the 4 points given on the 2nd page. They are spot on to me. So again, this is to hopefully ENCOURAGE someone who may be feeling less superior because they are more introverted and NOT to start a debate or negative thread. :D
  4. Saw this on Facebook today and wanted to share. Very intense and pretty amazing!!
  5. I've been reading these boards for YEARS, and have seen the seasonal cycles of topics, but I've never seen threads on the topic I've seen a lot of over the past year or so: becoming drawn (back?) to a more traditional/liturgical/ritualistic church experience. I wonder why this is. You people are getting me to think! I grew up Catholic, but after my parents got divorced and my Mom went through a "born again" experience in the Catholic charismatic movement in the 70s, we slowly went through a transition from the Catholic church to non-denominational churches. So, I attended a non-denominational church in my late teens, then joined an interdenominational missions organization (Youth With A Mission) and spent almost 7 years working with that, then got married and attended a foursquare church for a couple of years, then a Vineyard (movement which started in the 70s, I think) church for the past 14 years or so. I am steeped in the lingo and concepts of non-traditional churches, lol. But I can't help but start questioning some things that I've been steeped in, and then when I read all these threads of late, I find myself thinking, "Hey, yeah, I know what you mean!" to many of the stories I've read. I didn't expect that. Not that I'm thinking about going back to the Catholic church, but at my Nana's funeral four years ago, I must say it was somewhat of a comfort to be in a ritual service, where I knew what to expect. Maybe it's my age (43 this Sunday), maybe it's my place in life (homeschooling a 13 and a 10 yo), maybe it's my desire for peace/comfort/stability/feeling of control over my mind and how I personally relate to God, but I'm a little tired of.....hype?.....the unexpected?......expectations to act in a way that I am not comfortable with and never have been and never will be, no matter how much I am told that this and this and this is the way to demonstrate your love for God and neighbour? What is this string of threads all about? Is there a bigger move back to tradition out there in N. America, that I am not aware of except for what I read here? Or am I just being influenced by what I've read here (I don't think so)? Who are you, who are moving from non-denom. back to tradition? What age range are you in? What is your religious background? What is your religious teaching/training? What has your past church experience been like? Would you consider yourselves to have been part of the mainstream American Christian culture, say, in the late 70s, 80s, and 90s? Why the change? And then I read things that made me think traditional church experience also encompasses, gasp, learning classically and learning to think! What do you think? My Catholic father is the ONLY IRL person I know who really GETS my strong desire to teach my kids Latin, logic, and rhetoric. I was shocked a few years ago to learn that he knew exactly what I was talking about when I mentioned it, because most people seem to think I'm overzealous with this homeschooling bit. And I was reading about a local Eastern Orthodox church, and the priest was described as being highly educated, and the website listed all the things he has studied: classical languages, piano, history, literature, sciences, theology, etc.. I was floored. I have never met a pastor who had that background. This guy has a piano in his house and plays classical pieces for people for fun. It just went against all my non-denominational experiences. And I was very impressed. So, why? Why this new wave? You see, my understanding was that non-denom. churches were started because traditional churches were too dull/restrictive/controlling/fake/etc. - but now that seems to be reversing, or am I nuts?
  6. My dd (14) attends an all-girls Catholic high school where she is expected to act like a young lady and be treated like a young lady. My daughter has experienced several things out our church that I find inappropriate. She has heard high school boys screaming the "f" word. This weekend she attended a youth Christmas party with a white elephant gift exchange; the gift she received was a pair of used men's boxers and a bra--I view this as a totally inappropriate gift for a 14-year old girl to receive at a party for boys and girls. I have raised these issues with the youth director and basically got "don't be surprised" and teach your daughter not to be surprised when things like this happen. He went on about how he wouldn't apologize for the students who were attending because they needed grace extended to them. (At no point has he made any statement to the group about the inappropriateness or addressed my daughter's discomfort witht he situations.) My stance is that if I take my 14-year old daughter needs to be nurtured at church. She needs to be supported in standing up and saying this is NOT the way to talk/act anywhere, but it is definitely NOT OK in God's house. I would like any input or suggestions others might have.
  7. I'm wondering..."Who in your family decided which church to regularly attend? Why did that person get to "decide"? Do both of you like it now? Do your children like it? Thanks! Carrie:-)
  8. My church is considering a name change from First Baptist Church because of negative connotations of "Baptist" and those who may never consider the church due to the name. What the new name would be is not being discussed yet, if ever. Any thoughts?
