Thank you both.  :) Yes, Arthur, I was speaking of Trinity in Chicago. Their choir is amazing! I do have a local congregation where I'm at in Tennessee. Unfortunately I have only been to the service once there. It was a very warm and welcoming experience indeed. Since my last post I have been tuning into the Berkley webcast on Sundays.
I want to return to my local congregation, and have been planning on it for over a month, and I hate making excuses but it is a bit of a drive and I am very shy at meeting new people. (I have panic attacks, general and social anxiety)
Though Christ has definitely transformed my habit of negative thinking. This is how I know He is here. I've lived in fear for years, and He has shown me His Love by breaking that inner pattern and being My Protector. He is my True Savior. I am so blessed!

I have found my home! I have been searching and searching for my spiritual community. I have been let down often, either by those who stray from the purpose of worship or by those who prescribe too rigidly to dogma or hierarchies. I knew immediately upon looking at a local UCC's webpage that this is the one for me!
This is what I have always known in my heart to be Christianity in its purest form. Love and acceptance and inclusion for all.
I am so thrilled right now I just couldn't wait to share! Unfortunately I didn't discover the local church was right down the street until about two minutes before service. I have been devoting my Sunday mornings to searching online, and today is the day! So I will be there at Trinity's webcast at noon.
Thank you all for being here. Feels great. God is so Good!!!  :)
