Welcome to the 30 Days of Thanksgiving!
What are you thankful for today?
It is amazing to me how I go through the day and take for granted so many things! This day I am thankful for the church…not my church(that is for another day), but the body of Christ.
I spent the weekend in Montana and as with every other place we go whether it be on vacation or camping, we normally find a church to attend. This is always a difficult time for me, I do not like just walking into a church full of people I do not know. However, my husband sees to it that we never miss church when we go out of town.
Now, even when he is not with us we make it a priority to be in church no matter where we are. It has been pretty amazing. We have been to some pretty great churches. There have been some that we actually double the attendance :).
But it is such an encouragement to be away from your home church and be welcomed with hugs and hand shakes. I know it is not always like that, but the greater percentage has been positive. We have heard some fantastic preaching and have met some great people all over.
Have you ever visited other churches when you are on vacation or out of town? What kind of experiences have you had?
