With the exception of one Sunday, I've been attending church every week this year. I'm pretty pleased with the services I've heard and continue to look forward to attending in the future.
Next weekend, they will be having a meeting with the young adults after service to discuss what types of future gatherings we might be interested in. I'm going to look online for some ideas this week, but does anyone have any suggestions I could offer the group? There are aprox 25 young adults aged 18-30ish that attend the church. I'm not sure what anyone else has in mind as I haven't really made any connections outside of the Pastor, but I didn't want to attend with nothing to contribute.
Each month our church has a theme and next month's is Gen-der-In-justice. The first Sunday in March the women have been invited to show off their talents, be it singing, playing an instrument, reading a poem, or whatever else they choose. I've decided to work on writing a poem. I'll share it here that Sunday.
I still haven't had the courage to speak out my prayer request, and perhaps I will work on that in the coming weeks, but I would appreciate if you could all keep A in your thoughts and prayers. As I expected, she's acting out and not behaving properly for everyone back home. I guess they weren't expecting this and they are having a hard time adjusting. I know this is age-appropriate behavior for such a major life change, but no one else seems to understand. Please pray for patience and understanding from the adults as well.
