As an individual who has traveled from place to place, and got my “squatter” on in a few random cities across the country for both work and school purposes, I can’t tell you enough about the importance of finding a good church to clear your mind at. In college, what looked like a beat up old warehouse in the middle of tiny ‘ol Columbia, Missouri wound up being a party every Sunday. A party that just so happened to get me through the tough times–issues at home, man problems, financial woes, FINALS. You name it, church got me through it. Actually, God did, but you catch my drift.
So now that I’m older, living in a new, big city, I want to find a church like that again. The options around me are superfluous, with churches from block to block, but there’s always some bumps in the road while searching. While church is supposed to be a great place to have fellowship and get a new perspective on the bible (though you should be familiar with your bible before you go), some churches that try too hard or don’t try hard enough can wind up being great places to get dressed up and take naps. So with that, here are seven signs to help you figure out whether or not it’s time for you to pick up your bible and take your praise elsewhere.
