The Christian Noob (n00b)

born & raised Catholic, now going to a Presbyterian church & still learning

Christian, plain and simple

I was raised Catholic, but now I go to a Presbyterian church. Does this still mean that I’m Catholic? If not, does this now make me a Presbyterian or at least a Protestant of some sort?

All I know and hence care about is that I’m a Christian. My faith (or lack of, much too many times) doesn’t change depending on the sign or label at the door of a given house of worship.

Anyway (as if anyone cares), I started going to a Presbyterian church because the persons delivering the sermon spoke plain English — not some Shakespearean rendition of a mass or tales of eternal damnation. I didn’t have to guess what these pastors from an altar were trying to communicate to the people on the pews. The most shocking thing was actually hearing jokes, laughing and even applauding after any beautiful performance (choir, solo soprano or baritone, children recital, etc). These were little details that are still new and exciting to me. After all, shouldn’t we all feel thrilled and engaged during worship?
