Church has been a tricky subject for Josh and I. For a while we searched. Then we found a church that we loved. Unfortunately, through no fault of the other members, to us, church became a chore. It was no longer something we enjoyed but just a place we went that was another job and kept us from the one morning we could sleep in and spend time together.
I'll give it this: your family is your number one ministry after your personal relationship with God. I know fellowship is important as well.
Sunday morning is our morning to skype with our friends in Japan. That's a form of fellowship. I almost feel like the people who say homeschoolers need to be socialized. It's like in my head, you have to go to a big building filled with many people you don't know well, to be fellowshiping. I go for the few people there that I'm close to. I know corporate worship is important, but I honestly have a hard time connecting in that setting. I know life and church are not about you. I know they are about glorification of Christ.
So tell me:
Church = Chore or Celebration?
