So many things I hate in me

So many things are so hard to believe

Do what you feel is right.



If you want to go back to church and you feel it will benefit you...by all means, go. But don't beleive everything you are told.



Cheers,

Jami,



I'd say go sweetie.

Even though you don't have faith right now, God still loves you, your pastor still loves you, and obviously all the people at your church still love you.

You can go and just be there, and maybe that will help restore your faith.

And I promise I'll start putting you in my prayers every night.

:)

So much love, Hannah

I'd say go when it feels right for you. Currently, I too feel distant from my faith and people tell me that the only way to get back into the swing of things is to go to mass, but I just can't do it. I feel that I must first find where I feel I stand in my beliefs and in the church and then I can make my reappearance. Until then though, the more I am pushed to go, the more I am reluctant to go. Do it at your pace not anyone elses.



Maybe take it in small steps. An example would be to go once a month, or every third week, or every other week, until you get to an area till you feel comfortable.

Jami, i would say go (yes - jeff said go to church :P)



I mean deep inside it sounds like you want to...



just go and listen to the message and if you realize that its all bs then dont' go

and if you realize that it inspires you and you are truely religious then continue to go



:hug:

Friend,



I understand where you are, I haven't been to church by my own will in some time. we goto mass every thursday at school ( I goto a Catholic High School), so I get my fill there usually, but I believe I want to goto mass on sundays again, so maybe we can encourage each other.



Pm me or maybe check out that link in my profile ;)

I think that you should go back by all means if you want to, as other people said dont go cause everyone else is tryin to make you go, go because you want to.....Even if you feel like you have lost some of your faith, go anyway, maybe it will help you get it back.....:)
