Have you ever found it difficult to find a church?
I have talked with many, many people who have found this to be very difficult. Single. Married. With kids. Without kids. Young. Not so young.
Yes, I do realize that some people look for a church with a consumer mentality. There are some people who seem to approach this issue like they would any other consumer need.
Yet, I am convinced that there are many, many sincere Christ-followers who, for a variety of reasons, have found it difficult to find a church in the town or city where they live. Perhaps you have had such an experience. Or, you may have been in conversation with a friend who has wrestled with this.
Let me add one more concern here. Here is a recent college graduate who moves to a new city because of a new job. She thinks she has found a church, but her parents don’t feel comfortable with that church. Or, her friends can’t figure out why she would consider being a part of that church.
The question(s): Why is it so often very difficult to find a church? What are some of the factors at work here?
