Sunday Evening Drive
April 9, 2017 5:03pm CST
We just finished a nice filling steak supper. My husband and I enjoyed the backyard while he grilled the steaks, potatoes, asparagus and mushrooms. I picked up a strawberry-rhubarb pie for dessert. It was really a spring meal. Earlier today we went to a new church. Of course everything is new to us as we've only lived here for a little over a week. But this church wasn't totally our style. So this evening, now that the dishwasher is filled and everything put away, we'll go for a Sunday evening drive. There is a church in a neighbourhood not too far away that we saw. We'd like to get the name of it so that we can look it up online-we haven't been able to find a site for it yet. Any parish that we potentially join must have a variety of age groups attending it because my husband will transfer his membership in the fraternal order to that one, and if you are the youngest member-you get called on to do a lot! And then we'll go church shopping again next weekend.

@Juliaacv did I ever mention when we were younger we moved almost every year so my husband could build his resume into what he wanted it to be... when we moved to Canada it was because of all those moves his reputation was top notched...and I put my foot down and we bought a house, in kansas we were renting and we were renting when we got here too.

Look up churches online and give a listen to a sermon or two, check out their activities, and read up on the pastors and elders. That's how I found the church I'm currently going to. It took three churches for me before I found one that completely meshed with my needs.

The drive sounds fun. I'm not officially a member of any church or synagogue (I'm half-Jewish, half-Protestant, and really a Freethinker) but I love the sense of family I get on Friday afternoons at the Synagogue in Berkeley (where I substitute teach at my friend's preschool) when we do "Pretend Shabbat." There are parents, teachers, and kids there, and there's always a kid on my lap as we sit in a circle and do the rituals.
