Hi everyone, I must sound confused. I come from a nondenominational church where I learned of the gospel, was 'saved' and baptized. In college, I attended a campus ministry and started attending a pentecostal church. I met my husband and we moved to a new place where we decided on joining a Baptist church. It wasn't until the beginning of this year that my husband decided that we were going to be Anglican. There's much more to this change than just a decision but years of reading, praying and researching but I felt somewhat blindsided when he told me he wanted to attend an Anglican church. My thoughts were, "You mean, those dead churches where no one hears the gospel?" It's taken almost a year for me to adjust to a whole new way of worship, but now I find that I enjoy the hymns, chants, prayers and sacraments more than I enjoyed the 'raise your hand in the air and feel the Spirit' kind of worship. My husband has been patiently showing me examples of how Anglicanism isn't dead. I now realize how watered-down the teachings have been from the non-sacramental and non-liturgical services I've been attending my whole life. I still have a lot of questions, though. I hope to find encouragement (especially from people who were previously Baptist or pentecostal) and answers here in this forum. Thanks for reading!
