Family Worship

One of the great blessings of visiting our son and his wife is just spending time together doing the normal things that families do when Mom and Dad don’t live many time zones away in a far and distant land earning a living. This last weekend, we were able to attend church together, which was one of the highlights of my visit with them.

We found a lovely church, Christ Episcopal, in downtown Pensacola. It has organ music, and as my husband says “they sing REAL hymns!” We smiled to see so many families there, from the youngest babies to older folk – the church welcomes us all.

And then AdventureMan spotted the Lutheran Church next door and said “Oh! They have a church souk!”

It was a truly glorious day.

  2. Ha! If he thinks Pensacola is like a church souk, you should take him an hour west to Mobile, AL! Or to Charlotte, NC where I live! (We are Episcopalian, too 🙂

    The Apple Kitchen is adorable!

  4. LLOOLL, Bit Jockey, you have to visit the NEC in downtown Kuwait – there are about 100 different services/churches who worship there!

    Scattering – We are looking forward very much to visiting Mobile, which is pretty much right next door to Pensacola. I wouldn’t mind visiting a church in Charlotte, NC, either, :-). The Apple is an adorable market altogether. It has things you need AND things you never knew you needed.

    Momcat – When you visit, I will take you there. 🙂
