I've really been struggling with getting myself to church. My relationship with God is an important part of who I am. I wouldn't classify myself as a "Bible-thumper" or anything of that extreme: I don't judge people based on religion, and I know my example of christ-like is lacking. But for myself personally, I know God has an important role in the pathes of my life and I acknowledge Him as my Savior. With that said, I have not spent enough time in my life making time for God. I know that you don't have to go to church to have a relationship, but for me, it helps to pause a moment from my busy life to just spend some time with Him and other believers. It is also important to me that I am bringing my baby girl into a world where she is aware of Christ's presence in my life. Kris does not believe in organized religion, and therefore I have fallen from my routine (but that is simply an excuse).
Therefore, I am making an effort to get my booty to church, starting this Sunday. I don't have a home church, but I do live less than a mile from a community church, as well as a Methodist Church. I grew up Lutheran, and tend to stray away from how traditional services can be, but went to a non-denominational Christian school for 10 or so years, so I have experienced a couple different approaches to a relationship with God.
I have made a commitmenet that this Sunday I will go to the community church--God, and myself willing.
