A new beginning

A few weeks ago, I wrote a letter to our former church. I also included a letter to our future church home.

We have been visiting a new-to-us church for the past month. It is considerably smaller than where we've been, but we are actually relishing in the anonymity of it. A lot of my irrational anxieties are held at bay because of the small size.

From what I have heard so far, I'm liking it. I will admit though, it is very strange walking into a building and not knowing a single person. As much as we feel that we have been 'anonymous', we were recognized this past week. Not because of who we are (The Mayor and his wife), but simply because we are 2 new faces that have been recent attenders.

The Mayor ran into the pastor in the foyer and introduced himself. When the pastor made his way into the sanctuary to get ready for service, he sought the Mayor out to introduce himself to me. At the end of the service, the pastor stands at the door and greets people. He remembered Songbird's name from our earlier meeting.

Songbird is adjusting. Change is a tough adjustment for us. She grew up attending a megachurch. It was nothing to be surrounded by hundreds of your peers.

It has a small church feel with megachurch worship. Perfect for where we are right now.

Personally, I am hopeful that this could be our new church home. I am not quite ready to jump in with both feet, but I'm alright dipping my big toe in.

I'll keep you updated!

Many blessings,
