Searching through communities of faith

In Uncategorized on March 29, 2011 by mstevensrev Tagged: , , ,

This has been a process much harder than I ever could have imagined. About two months ago I left Grace Seattle (the church Karin and I met in, were married in, supported us through seminary, and 2 of 3 girls were baptized there) and also have left the Presbyterian Church of America. Perhaps there will be posts down the road about why our journey has lead us this direction for now it is too raw and I don’t do well sharing emotional things.

So we have visited about a half dozen churches in the Seattle area. Established churches, church plants, churches that started around the same time as Grace. All of which have parts of what we are looking for but all have still left us wandering, we truly feel like refugees. The good news is there is not a lack of loving folks in these places, this is very cool and has been encouraging for Karin and I but we are still in lack.

So our journey goes on.

  3. Can’t wait to see you on Thursday! I have accepted the new job in principle, just waiting to hear how much my car allowance will be.

  5. Scott,

    Thanks appreciate your words and sorry that we were unable to worship with you at your wedding service. That was a very difficult decision.

    Michael
