I feel like I'm out of place. I am not even sure if I believe in God. My son goes to a MDO program at a church and he really loves it. Tonight he had a Christmas program and we went, but I hate that I dont know any of the other moms. I am lonely.
I get so self concious because all of the moms are fairly fit and in good shape, and I just feel like I dont belong. I have a hard time believing in a hateful God so it has made more sense for me to not believe in God at all. Any thoughts?

Start with the belief-o-matic quiz. That will steer you in a general direction of what religion/denom you should research. Then go to Sacred-Texts.com to do some reading. Meanwhile, check on facebook, Google+, and yahoo groups (as well as here on CM) for groups devoted to whatever path you want to explore. Once you figure that out, start looking for similar groups in your area.

I feel the same way except I don't think God is a hateful God. I think the "Church" wanted to put fear in people and have made him look like a hateful God.

OP, feel free to pm or friend me. I live in the Bible belt and don't really get to talk to many people who feel the way we do.

Go to different churches until you find one that suits you. Figure out what you want in a church. They are all different, it's the people who make the church, you'll be able to find one that you feel comfortable in.
