How do you decide on a good church? I feel that we have a good Catholic Church, but my wife is an evangelical Christian and needs the community of believers that is difficult to find in the Catholic Church. Also, it is rare that a homily speaks to her as much as a sermon typically does.
We’re thinking of switching our 2nd church home. A place where we can help volunteer and help to disciple other Christian believers, ideally some of them will become Catholics.
She’s attended a church for 10 years for which I’ve attended six and it looks like it may have grown to a size where she’s not receiving the fellowship she really needs. She doesn’t have the joy of service in volunteering because they have increased over time what they expect - we’re both greeters.
I am a Knight and a lector. I’ve been a lector for 8 years. I’ve been a Knight for 7 years and a 4th degree Knight for 5-6 (just before or just after meeting her). Definitely thinking about training to be an EMHC.
How do I be the spiritual leader that she needs and meet her at the level she is? We’re both equally yoked but see things from different perspectives. She has a really healthy view of Catholicism, but cannot make the leap both from a fellowship perspective and from a philosophical perspective.
