Is this possible?
This is the one thing that I have struggled with since leaving the organization.
I recognize the need and value of belonging somewhere, being a part of something, showing up weekly to a community where me and my husband and children are loved and utilized and incorporated and cared for. A place where are my kids qualities are nurtured and encouraged , and then reigned in and developed when needed.
I've joined mom groups and parent groups and tried to get involved in my sons school and enrolled my kids in community classes ... but it's not the same.
I miss that feeling of "brotherhood", and often wonder if I have done my family a great disservice by taking this away from them.
For the record we are not at all religious, and I have considered attending non denominational Christian churches just for the sake of community, but I didn't feel right about faking the whole Jesus thing.
I almost want to start a " Church for people who aren't religious"!
