Who or what gives you hope when the world around you seems dark and scary?

Name or Pseudonym: Miss my Church
Subject: It used to be Catholic Church...

But when I requested permission to be married in the Church that I grew up in, I was called a hyopcrite by the Priest no less! I just had moved back into the area after a one and a half year absence and had just begun to attend this church again. But since I had not made payment to this church, according to the Priest, he felt free to call me and my now-husband names. I just cannot go back to a Church that would do that to someone. You would think, that with all of the well-deserved bad press the Church is getting, that they would want parishioners back, but apparently not. Just the money. Sad, Sad, Sad. The Baptist Church has welcomed me, and that is where I will now stay. I know you will be too scared to print this, but I had to get it off my chest. I was actually losing faith in God because of this man. Why would a man of the cloth do that to a good Christian like myself? I continue to be upset.
