If you have been following my Monday posts for the past few months, you have been reading of our adventures in our new church. 2012 has honestly been a great year.
Now, though, the honeymoon is over.
That doesn’t necessarily mean anything bad. In fact, it could be just the opposite.
It doesn’t mean we are suddenly mad over anything.
It doesn’t mean there is some source of conflict.
What does it mean?
It means that the new has worn off.
It means that people are the same everywhere.
It means that basically, when it comes down to it, churches are often the same.
It means that if you live with some idealized version of what a church should be, you are bound to be disappointed.
It also means that it may be easier to find where the Lord wants us to work in the church.
One of the benefits is that it is a reminder that there will one day be a honeymoon that will never end.
How was your church experience this week?
