We don’t go to church together. What should I do?

So you met your girlfriend three months ago and she told you that she likes to go to church.  I am sure she was hoping back then,  that you would like to go with her and if you have yet to go, she is still hoping that you will go with her.  You didn’t grow up going to church and really don’t know if you want to go.  So what are you going to do?

Neither of you should plan to change each other.  It is a good idea to ask and seek to understand what each of you believe.  She obviously believes in God.  Ask yourself what or who you believe in?  Visiting a church does not mean that you will suddenly become a Jesus worshipper.  It will mean that you are open to learning and there is nothing wrong with that.  When you open yourself up to learn, you are allowing yourself to become wiser and to make an informed decision of what is best for you.  Only you can figure out what is going on inside of you.  I know people who go to church and love going and meanwhile, everything they are learning is not being applied to their everyday life.

If you decide to go to church with your girlfriend, let it be because you are going to experience it for yourself.  Let yourself capture the spirit or not.  Don’t do it for her, do it for you.  Whatever comes out of it, will be yours and no one can argue that experience.

Being open is the first step to learning anything.  Now you decide for yourself.
