PUTTING ASSETS INTO ACTION: Find a place in a religious community

“Isn’t that special?” Saturday Night Live-The Church Lady

This week, we take a look at Asset #19, religious community. According to the Search Institute, “Youth are more likely to grow up healthy when they spend one or more hours per week in activities in a religious institution.”

Did you know that in one of a variety of phone books this community has, there are no less than 22 churches and religious organizations listed as resources in our community?

If I look at one of the very basic things offered by a religious community, it causes me to ask a question…what would happen if you died?

Do you have a community of like- minded friends that would rise up to assist your family?

 Where would your family hold a funeral for you or your significant other?

Let me be honest here and tell you that I didn’t have church home for most of my life.

I went to church with a variety of people and learned a variety of things. I didn’t actually join one until just before I had my own children.

The purpose of this article isn’t to chase you into something you don’t want to do, church has to be a place you want to be and a community you want to be involved in.
