I've been thinking a lot about my church lately. It's gone through some major changes. I've tried to adjust to these changes. However, I just feel like the spirit is just gone. I have been getting more from the sermons, which was a complaint of mine, but other than that, nothing. I have no fellowship with anyone. I'm not involved in a sunday school, because right now I teach. However, even if I didn't teach, there is no sunday school to go to. I was talking to a friend about it and she made me think about how it's so different from when I first started going there. It was smaller and there was definitely more fellowship between people of all ages. They had dinner on wednesday night and once a year would have a big dinner on the grounds. That's all fallen to the wayside as the church has grown. I found out some recent news that upset me and made me question the decision making. I'm unsure what I'm going to do when august is over. Prayer would greatly be appreciated, because I've been at my current church for over six years and any change would definitely be out of my comfort zone.
