This is what happened to me, and i'm debating whether or not to go. I looked up the Church and they seem to be more focused on the lifestyle part of Christianity, not the religion itself. Like the helping other people part of it. But i'm still unsure. Religion makes me uncomfortable, as well as the external savior mentality. Yes, i'm Jewish, but don't really actively practice it. My worry about going is getting sucked into the gushy part of the religion, yet i know i'm not one to have my head in the clouds, preaching about Jesus.
It can be nice to have my head in the clouds, but i also feel the need to be grounded. When i came home, the next thing i did was listen to a news podcast to ground myself back to Earth.
What do you think? Should i go?
