I went to church alone.
I walked into Grant African Church and found my seat. I sat in the exact spot that I have week after week for the past year that I've been attending. It was as if no one sat there today because that was my seat and it felt so good to plop myself down in that big old pew, right where I always did before.
I don't consider myself to be a religious person but I am spiritual and I do think it's important to have some kind of greater belief in your life to practice and expand upon. That's the one thing I struggle with in Philippines -- having a church where I feel I belong and can be proud to be a part of. I'm so proud of Grant church. The thing I really love about Grant is that every one there is real, including the pastors. My pastor goes to my fitness gym in Canada (System) and I think that's so great. I love that. I really miss our late night post training chats. I can count on him for a motivational pick-me-upper and a solid heart-felt hug. I miss that. I miss Grant African Church.
