The search for the holy...

Jason waited to find a church home here in Mansfield until I arrived. We've only been here for two Sundays to visit churches but we've had some good experiences. I had a friend tell me once that when you're looking for a church home it boils down to three things: teaching, community, worship. I was incredibly lucky to find all three of those back in Durham at Blacknall Presbyterian Church. It is by no means a perfect church, but by the grace of God and intentionality on the part of the leaders and members of Blacknall, they are doing a lot of things right.

I've spent a lot of time thinking and praying over which of the three are most important to me now that I'm in a new place. It came down to teaching and community. I know that those are the things I'll truly need from week to week. Still, in church "shopping", it's easy to look at things way too critically and as a consumer. Case in point, the following hilarious video...

Any thoughts?
