Back into community

I’ve been kind of “missing in action” from a lot of community things.

There are a lot of reasons for that.

One of the biggest reasons is simply covid. Everything closed down and it was too hard.

I don’t really have an excuse for not going to church, though. They shut down for a month during the worst of the pandemic, then carefully reopened to people who wanted to worship. They realized people needed them.

They built all kinds of things so that as soon as the weather was even reasonable, we could have services outside.

I still didn’t go.

I wasn’t afraid of covid- I’ve never been “afraid”-just cautious, I just was afraid of having to put myself out there.

I am pushing myself to get back to church this morning.

I need it.

I’m a better person when I go. People care about me there and I care about people.

It will be awkward and I’ll have to explain why I haven’t been there, but it is what it is.

It will be good.
