every now and then i get an urge to go to church. i have never been to church (was raised as a JW) but its a really really strong urge to go. but as i usually have a screamign child with me i havent acted upon it. why?

Just do it, Misdee!

Screaming child no problem - Jesus loves the little children, remember!

The first step is the hardest, and it may not work out, but if you find a good church, it could change your life.

just pop in with the baby when you're out for a walk. it's not like you have to go for a service, just see how it's like. you might not like it after all or you might think it's very special.
depends on the church.

I feel like that sometimes and I'm not particularly religious. I think we're all looking for a bit of "peace" sometimes. I consider my garden to be my church - when I'm pottering around out there in the sunshine I feel peaceful, relaxed and think clearly. Sorry, rambling....

Parents don't need to know. It's called being economical with the truth

i think its the peace i crave.

I know you are up to your eyeballs misdee but you sound like you need to walk along a beach, by yourself or sit by a river or up a mountain and have a good uninterupted afternoon of PEACE. Do you like near any of these that you could arrange for care for the kids and DH and get some wind in your hair?

I meant "do you live near any of these?"

God is waiting for you, he presents in lots of different ways. That sounds really preachy, but I didn't mean it that way.

There are some at my church who are never off their knees.

Then there is my generation, who have a more practical faith. Coffee mornings, etc.

If you only ever drop in,you will be at peace and that is the most important thing.

Some churches seem to give me a good feeling when I go inside, and our local church has a lovely, warm feeling to it to me. I'm not particularly religious but dh is. Whenever I go to church with him I come out feeling inexplicably calm. If you're getting the urge to go, go.

Do go. Hope you find what you're looking for. God bless.
