I think even with the new pastor, my church isn't that interesting. :)

Part of the problem may be that I stayed at this church mainly for the old pastor. I know it's supposed to be the case that the congregation is the main entity, and pastors come and go. But I've always had trouble (in this denomination anyway) with that concept since the pastor plays such a huge role in setting the tone of the service. There are few kids my son's age. Only one other in his class. There aren't many people in the same stage of life as my husband and I, or people we seem to have a great deal in common with.

There is a much larger church of the same denomination nearby, and I've always wanted to check it out, but our pastor was so darn great at theology and sermons that I couldn't bear to consider leaving.

I suppose if I felt more ties to the congregation we could all hunker down together and complain. :) I gather from some asides I've overheard that many people are not enchanted.

I appreciate your sharing your opinion and advice. It helped me clarify some of my dissatisfaction as being with the size and limitations of the congregation.
