Back at church

Tonight was church and it was awesome. We were welcomed back with open excited arms. People were so happy to have us back that it sort of took me by surprise. I really feel a sense of community and belonging. It's not always the best church and the services are sometimes lacking but the relationships being built are genuine and heartfelt. Last year I was reluctant to fully invest in the Pearl (our Taiwan church) because of the left over hurt I was dealing with from Lakeview but after a year of recovery I think I'm ready to be back in the game. I'm so excited to see where I can contribute and what my gifts can do within the ministries of our church.
