this was a very courageous step - and another milestone in your journey. regardless of whether or not you return to regular attendance/worship in the church, i believe that what you accomplished by voluntarily returning - has made - and will continue to make a huge difference in your peace of mind and well-being. you are living proof that we are not defined or confined by our past. it is possible to go on - getting better as we go...
thanks again for being here and for sharing your journey with us,
As my life goes on I believe somehow something's changed
Something deep inside...
I've been searchin so long to find an answer
Now I know my life has meaning
Now I see myself as I am, feeling very free...
When my tears have come to an end I will understand
What I left behind: a part of me. Chicago
