Detached - Fitting in at Church

Detached - Fitting in at Church

A sad blue man is separated from a group of peers. 

I have always lived in this middle age group where I was older than everyone in the immediate sociological grouping (e.g. school). I’m too old for the group I’m in yet some how too young or detached from the age group I should have been placed.

At the church I attend, there is not anyone near my age and with the Empty Church crew Kristal is my age whereas the other two old fogies have 5 years on me (Editor's note: we are NOT old fogies) . Meeting with them is perfect though because we all stand on equal footing because we all bring different things to the table. It is really great to finally have some people understand me (at least a little bit) because people who don’t understand you in the least are terrible to be stuck with all the time.

            The disciples were all different and they argued and got things wrong, but they were on the journey with Jesus. While there isn’t 12 of us to argue and get things wrong, I look forward to knowing God with others and I hope others decide to come along for the ride. Its going to be a crazy one.

Lets all work together bringing all our perspectives to find the truth.
