Goldilocks and Church Hunting…

At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was hungry.  She tasted the porridge from the first bowl.

“This porridge is too hot!” she exclaimed.

So, she tasted the porridge from the second bowl.

“This porridge is too cold,” she said

So, she tasted the last bowl of porridge.

“Ahhh, this porridge is just right,” she said happily and she ate it all up.

I realize this is a leap but I thought of Goldilocks since we’ve been church shopping for the last few Sundays. When we moved back to Washington we knew we’d have to find a new church home to settle into. The church we’d attend when we flew back and forth was a little too hot for us. A great church with a fabulous ministry but just too hot for our comfort. (And you know it’s all about us…)

The second church we visited 3 Sundays to see if it was the right fit but the chair was too big and too old. The next church we tried today was very close to home and  the chairs and the worship music were just right but we weren’t comfortable with some theology…

Soon we’ll find the place that’s just right and we’ll be able to start to use our gifts again to serve the Body of Christ. Until then just call me Goldilocks…

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. I hope “just right” will be just that; not perfect, but a good fit for the two of you. At least you are not church shopping to check out single guys (like so many young women do) or to find a church with good nursery care. On the other hand, eventually we might need to consider good sound systems to hear well, a minimum of stairs to climb, and other aids for the aging!

  2. Yo Goldilocks! This is a very sad, but true situation. I know that the Lord has something just right for you and Dear and hopefully it’s very near…tee hee!!! OK, on a more serious note: I’ll keep you in prayer because I know how difficult it is to find the right church. But I also know that He will keep you safe while the search goes on ;-).
