My views on church

I seemed to have settled my views on church at least for the time being now. I kinda think that maybe we go to a church like Hillsong or something 1-2 times a month, as a real good time of worship corporately and teaching. I am finding that maybe a commitment of once a month or 2-3 weeks is much more do-able and then also enjoyable than once a week. It seems to roll around too quick and its like you are locked into some kind of "have to" kind of pressure.
But that for me the 'real' church will be found with a couple or few people who we get on well with and can discuss stuff and challenge each other and actually truly 'fellowship' with and we just spend time with each other and have meals together and want to do that because we are not having to go meetings and programs and stuff. Or as my wise friend (Dave Marsh) once said, find people who can mentor/challenge & input into you and then people who you can mentor/challenge & intput into.
Anyways, that's my thoughts on the subject as of now... maybe it might change with kids, maybe not. I think I have been affected by the 'tranquil' lifestyle in Paraguay, cos the water in my river is flowing slow, cant be bothered with the rush of the currents!
