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,
We are often troubled, but not crushed;
sometimes in doubt, but never in despair;
there are many enemies, but we are never without a friend;
and though badly hurt at times, we are not destroyed.
- Paul, II Cor 4:8-9
