This morning was the first time I’ve been to church in Knoxville pretty much since the end of May, and it was really great. The choir sang a bunch of really excellent songs, one of which gave me chills. I really want to be in that choir. The sermon was also really good and coherent, and the people around me actually acknowledged my existence, which was nice. Next week the test: Sunday School. If I like that, I’m definitely staying at this church. They’re starting up a new small group program in August, which is just what I want, so I can have accountability and friends to encourage me in my walk.
I can’t stand this heat. Diana and I are going swimming this afternoon though, so that should help. I’m definitely ready for fall to come, so the leaves can change, the wind can be crisp and cool, and I can wear sweaters and turtlenecks!
