Social Anxiety Soap Opera

I have been attending a new church. I love the worship, and the people are nice enough, but I am having a hard time getting past the surface and finding real friends. As an introvert, coffee hour terrifies me. When I do manage to go, I only make it about 10 feet into the parish hall, and give it about five wrenching minutes before I flee. It pains me to see all those people laughing and having fun, and having to feel on the outside of things.

Home Truths

Even in the church that bears Christ's name we often can't hear what Jesus is saying to us because he is such a familiar figure. We are too comfortable with him.

I start every Sunday morning sermon that I preach with these words from Psalm 19; I’m sure you’ve heard other preachers do the same.
