Or if anything threw me off, I would question my beliefs or church authorities.
Well, it is not so.
Being an adult, and involved in church, the biggest challenge has come from somewhere else.
I don't know quite how to say it, to explain it. But I think the biggest challenge is working with other adult leaders. We all have goals and ways we intend to magnify our responsibilities and sometimes doing so steps on each other's toes. We may push to have our way and push someone else right out of accomplishing their duties.
I don't know how to repair this. I just know it's tough. And somehow knowing the challenge makes wading through it easier. And that's what I really intend to do- do my best to get through the challenges of it. I don't intend to quit church, I don't have any good reason to.
What I want to know is, if anyone else has had this same challenge? I'm sure people have, but have you ever thought about it extensively, anybody ever identified this as the biggest issue in being religiously involved?
Like I said, I intend to just keep dealing with it all. It just initially took me off guard. The adults I knew never seemed to have such a struggle when I was a youngster.
