I went to a new church last night and it was great. It was contemporary and casual, but unlike most churches I have ever been to because the church in my opinion has not been the place of refuge it was intended to be. The people were really warm and I was accepted for who I was and most of the people there were my age and we had quite a few kids as well.
I desperately needed that kind of fellowship and atmosphere since the death of my wife two weeks ago and the pastor's message was really timely for what I am experiencing right now too.
I am definitely planning on going back and it definitely lifted my spirits and my silly Labrador who stole the show did not hurt things too.
