The only question about returning to the church is what is holding you back?
Lord, let us be encouraged by the parable of the returning prodigal son Help us to realise that ours is a forgiving and loving God.
When we are lost or have strayed away, help us to also forgive the reasons why. To remember that our hurt can be healed by welcoming love.
Let us not be held back by anger, envy or resentment. But make a new journey to rebuild our faith that is based on mutual love.
Yes you may have got bored, it was not what your friends do, you did not feel welcome, and many other reasons and emotions.
Why not listen to Lorraine who after 40 years returned to the church:
