I will be going to a Lutheran church tomorrow morning for the first time. My wife was there last week as she wanted to find a church where my MIL and I would feel comfortable going and would go to each week. She thinks that my MIL and I will be very comfortable at Lutheran service as it closely resembles a Catholic service. A couple weeks ago I tried a church with my wife that maze me very uncomfortable. While singing worship songs it looked like a rock concert complete with fog from a fog machine and moving lights. There were people waving around flags, people hopping up on stage doing interpretative dancing and others dancing up in front of the stage. Then after the pastor was done preaching be asked for people who would like to be prayed over/for and the were people falling over backwards (slain in the spirit). My wife liked it over all, but then she prefers charismatic/Pentecostal services with signs of the Spirit working. She went back this past Wednesday to a woman's group meeting and is going back the service tonight. My MIL and I prefer a reserved service. I don't mind contemporary Christian music during worship, but what I saw there was making me very uncomfortable. My MIL who has schizo-effective disorder would find it very uncomfortable as well. I just wish that I could find a church that my whole family will go to every week, instead of two different churches. My wife will not attend the Lutheran church with us regularly. She only went last week because she wanted to find my MIL and I somewhere to attend. She will go October, 5 because she wants to bring our dog to be blessed, but she is not a fan of reserved services or traditional churches where there is no outward sign of the Holy Spirit working or guiding the service. I don't think my family will ever call a church our church home where we all go and it's depressing.
