So I just got back from visiting a gathering here in town. I mentioned before meeting a guy at work who reads the same books I read. Well, it turns out he meets with some Christians in town. He invited me out to the gathering, and I went this morning.
My overall impression is very positive. I've been down this path before, so I'm a lot more cautious now. I tend to rein in my enthusiasm a little more, having been burned. But from one morning's visit, this really seems to be what I've been looking for.
I won't say too much more right now, but I'd really, really appreciate prayer from everyone on this.
