Sometimes when I go to church, it makes me feel guilty. I know it shouldn't be that way, and I know it's self-inflicted. Still, it's there. I
absolutely love my new church and everyone I've met there: don't let
that be mistaken. Actually, I'm sure they're the ones who have inspired
me to fix this problem. The remedy is relatively obvious: I need to live
a more faithful life every day, in all aspects of my life. The doing,
however, is the hard part. But I guess it all comes around to faith: the
more you give, the more you get.

I'm not sure church and faith have any sort of a chicken-and-egg relationship, but what others think about that idea has always fascinated me. It probably doesn't matter
what others think about it, sort of like the "God doesn't care what I
wear" mindset of choosing what is appropriate church dress, but it's
interesting to me nonetheless.
For now, off to church. Maybe I'll learn more about this elusive balance there today?
