Being 'the visitors' at church means you constantly have to introduce yourself, repeat your story of 'looking for a home church', and make awkward small-talk to well-meaning members. I know it's part of it all, but Ugh! This is the reason that Josh and I have started conducting our own little church at home. Each night we sit down and spend time together with God, and on (most) Sunday mornings we eat breakfast while watching online-sermons from our previous church in Little Rock. Words cannot describe how amazing it is to grow closer to God and to each other. I love reading and praying over God's word with Josh; it has truly been a blessing to our marriage.
But it is time we find a congregation of believers here in Fort Smith. We need the Christian fellowship and support only a church can bring. That's why we are heading back out there again...we are going to visit (and revisit) more churches in attempt to call one home.
Please pray that God leads us to a place that needs us just as much as we need them.
