    PART 3: I had been thinking about going to church for a few months. A coworker of mine who is very religious with 7 children and a loving husband lost her husband unexpectedly and tragically. Speaking to her and her children while they were in the middle of this trial they were very grounded in their faith. That led me to finally talk to husband about going to church. He was baptized as a baby in the methodist church, I sought baptizism as a young teen in the baptist church. I was interested in seeing what catholicism was about and it turned out so did husband! For various reasons we didn't make it to church for about 3 weeks but the 1st week we went to Mass it was ephiphany Sunday. We felt at home and started RCIA about 2 weeks later. We were part of good sized group and all of came into the church on Feb 19, well 1 didnt because he needed baptism and he came in Easter Sunday with our son and 8 other older people! We are very happy with our church!

    PART 2: Doesn't sound like alot of moolah but that did put a strain on things that month and I was still using a hand crank model!!
    Anyway, fiance sat out the bridal shower figuring it was going to be a bunch ladies eating cake and kakklling so I went by myself. I walked into the social building and the bride-to-be (btb) seen me walk in but didn't smile at me or anything pleasant. I was able to talk to an older lady but she didn't stay very long. The BTB walked past me a couple times and never once said hi, thanks for the gift, not even leave my party you interloper! Needless to say I was quite upset. I tried to hold it together but I was still crying when I got home and fiance seen me out in the driveway and we decided we wouldn't be going back. Phase to approx 12 years later, much sin and deliquinency later, we still weren't back in a church and our son and family were lonely.

    PART 1: Forewarning this could be long! My husband and I, we were engaged and had a son at the time, had been going to a methodist church for about a yr. We tried to get involved with the church. We went Sunday mornings and evenings, Wednesday evenings, any church socials, 2 vacation bible schools, etc. We were in the young adults group which consisted of a couple of married couples, the preachers daughter and her boyfriend, and a couple other folks. We were never included in any of the "before Sunday school chatter" that often went on in the class. We were more included by the older ladies. The last time we went to any function in that church was when the preacher invited all congregants to the bridal shower and that the bride/groom was registered at target and a store in mall. Fiance and I weren't rolling in the dough and were really counting the pennies but we did buy an electronic can opener for $15.

    Hey! I'm from Scotland originally, but now live in Sydney, Australia with my husband and two growing up girls. Think this is only my second post of this website.

    Thanks for the reply.

    When you said there's no doubt about the real threat of Hell, that's pretty much my whole problem; that you don't know that for sure. No one does.

    About not underestimating the gravity of some of the sins I mentioned, I just can't do it. I can't put murder on par with willfully missing Mass. I could be wrong. But I really don't think I am.

    But you seem to have an open mind, and are not as pulpit-pounding as some others I've talked to.

    Thanks.
