Parish Christian

I'm a parish christian.
I was raised and converted in a local church, by people raised and converted in local churches.
I was nurtured in sunday school and youth bible study.
I learnt to serve in a parish.
I was never really involved with a Uni group.
Part of me regrets that fact. But part of me doesn't.
Don't get me wrong, some of my best friends were in Uni christian groups, they are an amazing opportunity for christians to grow and think.

But, since I've never been part of one, I'll never regret that my church isn't like a Uni group, hopefully I'll never expect my parishoners to be like uni students. And I hope I'll be able to see the gifts and leadership potential of a wide variety of people.

I like being a parish christian
