Have you ever felt like you didn’t fit in anywhere ?
It is a lonely experience. We left the Catholic Church after two priests were dismissed and the parishioners were given no explanation.
Then we worshipped at home for a while, before exploring some other churches.
We thought we had found a new church home a few weeks ago. It had a beautiful pipe organ, and we felt happy singing familiar traditional hymns.
However, last weekend the minister made an announcement that made me gasp. The gasp was audible, but involuntary. When the names of the people getting married were announced, I realized it was two women.
The body of Christ appears to be facing more division, when we should be seeking greater unity.
The picture is of flowers called Snow in Summer. They bloom quite happily in our salty environment.
My husband and I are still searching for a church family.
