This month has marked a lot of changes for me. I have found a new home. I am searching for a job. I have moved far from my old life. As I settle into a VERY small new town, I have decided that I want to be a part of a church. I am ready to join a community that pushes me to be a better person. I am ready to serve with others and question.
I want to affiliate myself with people who care about each other and put themselves second. I want to live in a place that believes in making the world better through their choices and pushes each other to be strong.
BUT, can I go to a place where sex and shame are synonymous? Can I build a community where I have to fight what I hear to believe what I know? Can I make friends in a world where I am pushed to discriminate and judge?
You know what? I do want to go to church just not any in my new town…
