Over the past 10 years I have searched for the right church home. I came closest in my last city. I was a member of a Bible study at my local church and was absolutely at home in that community. I met wonderful people there and my relationship with Christ made great strides. But I couldn't take the services. I can't stand a minister who shouts! I much prefer minister's who talk in a teaching tone. Shouting always seems so contrived and theatrical to me. And what's up with the musical accompaniment/emphasis? I always feel like they are distracting me from hearing the still small voice of the Holy Spirit and instead trying to engage my physical being. I love a praise and worship service but not while I'm expected to be fed the Word. Am I the only one?
