Interesting. I grew up Roman Catholic and was finally baptized in a tiny (30 people) Southern Baptist church. We have been members there since until recently when we joined the largest CMA church in our area. In the meantime we went off and on to the S.Baptist church, feeling sorry for their numbers until we realized that sin issues were the reason they kept losing pastors and gaining overly legalistic controling ones. We moved, ended up in a CMA church in Mass. moved back 18 months later, went to the large CMA we are in now, went to a smaller one nearer for a few years, then home-churched at the Lord’s prompting for a year (we homeschool and it ws good for the kids to learn how to behave properly in church and they really grew in the Lord in that time) now the Lord has prompted us back to the large CMA where we have finally joined and where I have become very involved in a huge outreach to the women of the community. It is wonderful to see how God has worked and brought us through these different churches, provideing for our needs until we were able to stand on our own and help others grow.
I would wish that the journey would have been shorter, tht the growing hadn’t taken so long, but at least we know we are where He wants us right now and are open to where He would send us in the future.
