I’m trying to find young adult groups in the Kingdom of His Most Glorious Excellency Richard Daley but I’m not sure what to do. Here’s the selection so far:
Local collegiate young adult group: many young people my age (+) but very happy-clappy spirituality (-) which isn’t really my type of thing;
Local young adult group at a local parish: traditional, no happy-clappy stuff (+) although many of the members are clearly out of college (-) but the overall structure of things is more my style. Just wish more youngsters like me went;
There is also a third group at the Cathedral that I haven’t checked out yet and probably won’t be able to this weekend because family is visiting. But I’m trying to decide between the two above. I had a conversation early this morning at like 1 am with a friend and he suggested that I try both but also strongly recommended the first group…I was put-off by the fact that we was very strong in his suggestion and I felt bad afterwards for not considering attending that group…I felt pressured but I am sure that wasn’t his intention (he obviously feels strongly about them and greatly likes the group).
I want to attend that group because of all the young people (and young ladies, too) but I am really put off by that kind of spirituality (big time)…I tend towards more traditional forms of spirituality. It also doesn’t help that I have lots of self-doubt and now feel guilty for not considering the first group :shrug:
What is everyone’s thoughts?
