i was wondering what "church" means to you--or what do you expect from your church/spiritual leaders there--i used to think a church would provide support, spiritual support--your pastors you could go to to understand scripture, help in spiritual growth, of if you were suffering from depression, or spiritual depression, they would be able to help you--support you, etc--i remember when churches used to help with an uplift, send cards, come to your house if you were sick, etc--guess i was wondering what your church is like (or your leaders, etc)--i just can't seem to find a "church" with leaders that are personable like that anymore--and that is something i want in a church--am i just having a "tainted" view of what a church, and their leaders should, or could be. what are your thoughts, and church/leaders like???? tired of being hurt and disappointedAnswer Question

I'm sorry you can't find something like you want where you are. Our little Church ( which growing by leaps and bounds with the new Priest) Is just like you described. He is there to talk to about things. heck he's even on line. Which is the best place to ask A question of him. As for welcoming. I belong to the Jubilee Society which welcomes new members and sends birthday cards to the older ones of our parish. We also put on a baby shower at least two times a year for the women's care center for women in crises pregnancy. I could go on even farther with all that happens here outside of Sundays. Again I'm sorry you are feeling the way you are. Maybe it's time for some church shopping. for there are Churches out there like you want and should be.

As for learning our priest every Wednesday has some kind of study where after we break up into little groups and discuss things.
