Home for the holidays, one holiday at a time.

I am visiting my parents for Thanksgiving. My work (pbfixit.com) gave me the week off of work so I could spend more time with my family. I took my dad to chruch this morning. I found a small church online. Calvary Chapel Livermore seems to have a congregation of about 25 and the Pastor (Mike) used to be a cop in Stockton. He teaches the Word of God straight from the Bible and the church activities consist of Bible Study, prayer, and fellowship (with food). Seems like a good church to me. I walked in the sactuary and immedietly felt like home. I even knew the words to the songs. (overhead) My dad seemed to be a little restless through the message, but did stay around and talk some afterwards. I'm praying that he'll want to go even when I'm not here but I don't think that will happen just yet. On the up side, I've found a place where I know I can go and worship and fellowship when I'm in the bay area on a Sunday morning. Coming home usually consists of a dry spiritual time because I spent so many years here as a non-Christian. It's way too easy to fall back in those "let's not make waves" tendencies. If it wasn't for my family, I wouldn't really come back here at all.
