Hey guys, thanks for all the advice & encouragement.
@Patricia, glad to know there's more Atheists in Columbus. Good points, too.
Everyone at the home church is aware that I'm an Atheist. I saw some of you ask about that, so I thought is was worth noting.
I'm still giving it some thought but I'm leaning towards leaving the home church. I think me doing that would really put my friendships with everyone there to the test. I'd still like to keep connections with them though. I'll give it some more thought & keep you guys posted with any thoughts or ideas I have.
If you guys have any more questions or anything like that, feel free to keep the thread going or message me.
Thanks again to everyone for the support & advice. I'm sincerely grateful for it. =]
I hope it works out for you.
I hate to sound like a Mom, but if you leave and your friends drop you then they weren't really friends. Oh that made me sound old.
Haha, you don't sound motherly to me. I actually thought about that a few days ago & it sounds right to me in this scenario. I do appreciate hearing it from someone else though.
