Church

I know the people that read this, and I was a little hesitant to post this blog, but I decided I might as well be honest (urgh..don't be mad!).
Yesterday was Sunday...the 4th Sunday I've been in Austin. Well, I finally went to church. It's not like I hadn't wanted to be going, I just didn't know where, or with who.
I finally did it though, and am SO glad I did. It was awesome. God is awesome. My friend, Kim, and I both went. Turns out she'd been wanting to go too, but didn't know who to ask. We went to 'Sunday school,' which we didn't like so much. It was too big (next week we're going to try the smaller group sessions). Then was 'big' church. People back home know what I mean by that. Anyhow, this church was massive! There were so many people, and the choir was huge. The number of the people isn't what made it so great though. You could FEEL everyone's love and their excitement to be there praising The Lord and learning more about Him. Wow.
I need to go to class, but maybe I'll write more about it later on today.

Cool Updates Meredith! I had actually looked at Hyde Park when I was sending out resumes...they have like a whole army of youth guys. All I can say from an old "church guy gone to college" guy myself is get involved in the small groups as soon as possible...the key there is that you start being the church and don't just go to church like I did for most of my College Career...Also, Congrats on going out for crew...that rocks! Let me know how it goes!
