    She's looked around and can't find one she likes. Does anyone have any suggestions?? A few things she's said:

    I long for a church that holds to the Bible, is smallish in size (under 1000), does not equate worship with a rock concert, where I can meet people and build relationships at church. I want a church where my kids aren't relegated to the children's wing and never see the inside of the sanctuary until they hit middle-age. Oh right, they also can't condemn me as a heretic because I believe that the spiritual gifts are still relevant for today--I pray in tongues, I pray Charismatically, I believe God still performs miracles today.

    So any suggestions??

    No churches to suggest if this is a requirement.

    I think she's looking for a church that won't crucify her for that. I know in our church she would be asked to not be disruptive in the service but if she does this quietly or at home, that is fine. We WILL teach on some of these things but we certainly wouldn't say she was a heretic to be burned at the stake for this!

    Funny, I have almost had the opposite reaction. I hope she can find a church soon if not already.
