of power divine, supremest wisdom, and primeval love"

same. only i don’t write everything down i just say it was awful and move on. my mother has stopped going to church completely at this point so i guess there’s a start? :P
I take notes for errything because going back to things always yields better results for me, even the sucky ones.
I haven’t been to an actual Sunday morning church service since before I went to SAU. The other church I want to try is the one where this guy is the head pastor and I think I might actually like that one if he’s as good as he has been at chapel.
I hate “testing” new churches because so far I have never loved or even liked the first service of any church I have gone to, today included.
If my page of notes is over half questions that expose contradictions in the message that should have been address by the end, there’s a problem.
I’ll give it one more Sunday, since it is the church my friends attend and I really don’t feel like never going again based on one service. (But for real, I shouldn’t be able to pick apart a good sermon. I’d prefer to spend that time learning.)
