I’m in my mid-40s. For the last few years I have sensed something missing from my life. I have never been able to quite put my finger on the problem. My life just seems a little less than satisfying.
I was raised Roman Catholic. I went to parochial school the first six years, then to CCD through high school. Towards the end of my senior year I started to question the whole church thing and I stopped going just about the time I graduated. I continued to consider myself religious for several years—just unchurched. Eventually I fell away completely. There was no catastrophic event that led me away—no priestly buggery or anything like that. I simply lost my faith and allowed my intellect to take over.
As I trudge into middle age, I realize that this no longer serves me well. The emptiness can only be filled by a return to spirituality. However, I cannot abide the Catholic church. I recently came across what I know in my heart is the right choice for me. And it’s Baptist! I never in a million years ever thought I would affiliate myself with a Protestant faith, much less the Baptists! I am saved! And I want—no must—share my faith with others so that they might become saved as well.
I implore all my loyal readers to check out my new “home.” It’s called Landover Baptist Church. They even have a web site! Check it out!
I am so happy that I am saved, and I’ll be even happier once the rest of my family and friends are assured of entrance to the Heavenly Kingdom!
