4. It's hard to find a church...Often I've felt on the "outside" I get it

And my core beliefs are more Native American/Pagan... So it can be hard for me to integrate the Jesus-centric angle of most christian faiths...

Our former pastor was so good at also invoking Nature and higher Conscousness into the scripture/sermon. I still watch his streams from Hawaii now sometimes.

Yeah, when I was healing from my divorce and my kids were little, I found this gem of a place...had a preschool too with amazing people. I even worked as church secretary for a while and helped the pastor launch a wedding page for the church. He and his wife were young and tatooed...the older members had some issues for sure... I never liked how churches can be so "political" with older members infighting etc... Humans, even in church (where we're supposed to be trying our best to be loving) can really be awfully petty creatures!

Glad you found a faith-home
