Drifting away from church?

One day last summer I lost my church. Or rather, it lost me.

I’d been out of the country a couple weeks, and, therefore, hadn’t been to church in a while. My first Sunday back, I showed up at the usual time and place ready to reconnect with friends through a communal experience of faith.

My first clue of something amiss was pulling in my usual three minutes late and being the only car in the parking lot. Inside, the community centre that had been our church plant’s meeting place for the past eight months was empty. I even drove to the new building we were in the process of converting into a church to see if we were holding a special service there. Nope.
