This week the 4 Moms are discussing the kinds of churches we attend, how we choose a church, and how we fit in, with our large family selves, at our churches.
Be sure to see what my team members are saying about their churches:
First, I'll address how we fit in at our church because it is the same way we fit in everywhere we go. That is to say we stick out like a sore thumb.
We are the only large family at church and the only homeschoolers except for one other family who is starting kindergarten this year.
I am also the only woman there who can nurse a baby, make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and review multiplication facts at the same time. It's a gift, really, but that's another post, isn't it?
Even though we do not worship with anyone who looks or lives exactly the way we do, we love the church we attend.
We are faithful members of the church of Christ.
My husband is the son and the grandson of longtime church of Christ preachers, and I am the daughter and granddaughter of longtime church of Christ members.
Whenever we move to a new town, as we have several times in our 26 year marriage, we never have to look around town to wonder what church to attend. We know right where to go.
We love the acapella singing. We love the focus on Jesus' death, burial, and resurrection each Sunday. We love the emphasis on searching the scriptures.
We obviously have differences in opinion about a few things, as evidenced by the fact that we are the only ones with more than a handful of kids, but we belong there.
We overlook our differences, just as we do with our many Catholic and Protestant friends of differing faiths and beliefs, and we love one another.
What church do you belong to?
