Loving my church family

Reading the blogs and reconnecting in small ways with the people I take communion with every Sunday has been one of the best things I've ever done. These people are like sandpaper for my soul stripping away the rust and challenging me to think and be in ways I never before dreamed possible. Thanks to Tom (pastor) and everyone else I'm learning that I really can like and love these people who are so different from me. Ever so slowly I'm learning that I can be me without looking down on everyone who isn't me. I'm also learning I can be me without feeling totally backwards and weird. It's a humility and an exaltation at the same time. Thank you RMC.
