So we did it, we went to church yesterday. We went to one of the ones I had been checking out. A friend of ours went last weekend and really liked it. So we decided it was time and we went.
However, it wasn't without struggle (what is!), as we almost didn't make it because we couldn't get the garage door to close. Finally Leo unhooked it from the crappy opener and just closed it.
We dropped the kids off in their kid rooms (Little Man was not happy about this) and headed off to the auditorium. I have never been to a contemporary service so upon entering it felt almost like a concert. It was totally strange and I was initially really uncomfortable and turned off. But as the service went on I enjoyed it and am glad I went. I would like to go back. The kids did have a good time as well. So overall it was a good experience. I think it will take some getting used to with the band and stuff but I think I'll like it there.
And there was no lightening strikes so I must still be in good graces...
