Why is my church so weird?
I took the girls to church by myself this morning. Craig had to plant grass seed (I'm not joking.). So we hit the morning mass and then McDonald's and then back to church for Nora's Religious Formation orientation.
I don't have the stamina to go through it all again but there's something wrong with my church. I figured it out today. There is nothing traditional about it. That's it in a nutshell and it really drives me crazy.
It's not a traditional looking Catholic church ( it looks like a community center complete with folding chairs) and the mass is different (way too much holding hands for me). There's more reasons I don't like this church, but these are glaring problems.
I love tradition and I'm so having a hard time meshing with this church. I hope I can get over my misgivings so I don't pass it on to the kids. They are fine with it because it's all they know.
On a happier note, here is a scrap of Nora and Lulu circa 2005. Pretty cute!
