Dear Pastor Sam
Dear Pastor Sam,
I wrote you before and you helped me out so I thought I would write again. Several months ago I attended a different church than the church where my membership is. My husband and I enjoyed the service but we didn’t go back because of guilt. We don’t want to hurt our present pastor and we do have some friends in the church. We don’t feel comfortable in the church we are members at but we don’t want to hurt people’s feelings. What should we do?
This is a tough place to be and it is hard for me to tell you what to do. I do believe you need to let your Pastor know how you feel. I think that you and your husband have to make this decision together. I think if you talk with your Pastor you may not feel guilty and the decision will be easier to make. I am sure he doesn’t want you to go but I know he won’t hold you back.
If you would like to write Pastor Sam you can do so by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and asking your question. Please note do not sign your name. Letters will be published in this blog so you will NOT get a personal answer.
