The Conundrum of the Church Search

It's not like shopping for a good pair of jeans, it's not like picking out the best onion at the grocery store, and it's not like interviewing for a job or interviewing someone for a job. It's more like a finger looking for the hand it belongs to. Wierd.

hey Paul, Josh Hitchcock here. I met you today here at SBTS, one of Chris Raineys buddies from Brewton Parker. Anyway, may I recommend Ninth and 0 Baptist Church? That is the church I have recently joined and I think you will find it to be very solid theologically, solid in the way the church is run, and also very inviting to new folks as well. I love it and have moved my letter there. I would love to see you around.

Thanks Josh! We're going to visit 9th and O (again) this Sunday- when are you going?

hey, I doubt you'll get this in time, but we go to adult bible fellowship at 9 and church at 10 30. Anyway, see you around. I go to the evening service as well.

That is a wonderful way to describe what it feels like when you're seeking what church you're supposed to be at:

"It's more like a finger looking for the hand it belongs to."

I shared this awesome analogy with some friends of mine. Thanks!!!
