Dear Family and Friends,
Just a quick update on our church hunt situation. As you know, last Sunday we visited the Oceanside URC. That went very well. We enjoyed the worship in its reverence and we enjoyed the liturgy. This Sunday we will be visiting New Life PCA in Escondido ( http://www.newlifepca.com/ ). So, both churches are Reformed churches, and both have different worship styles.
Basically, if we end up joining New Life PCA in Escondido, we would still go to GBC in the evenings for the Lord's Table. If we joined the Oceanside URC, we would have the Table weekly as well as evening service there, and we would need to dissolve our membership at GBC. That of course is a very difficult decision.
I have the difficult task of being the leader of my family and making the final decision as to where we will end up. There are pros and cons of whichever way we go. At this point, I need to consider how much weight some of the pros and some of the cons have. I of course want to run over all of this with my beautiful wife, who is my counselor. I want to do what is best for my entire family, and not just what I want. I need to remember that.
Any words of wisdom in the comments section are very welcome. Lift us up in your prayers please. You all know how painful this has been for us. We are slowly getting better, but also pray especially for any who may be saddened by this as well.
Thank you all for your prayers thus far. We know the Lord will never leave us nor forsake us. We take comfort in that.
