All my pre-conceptions of church were blown out of the water - it was engaging, I found myself welling up in the sermon/talk, I loved the music, I enjoyed the melodies and the words grabbed me, I understood it, it made sense to me and my life.
I felt like everyone there cared about me, and they didn’t seem to be put off by the smell of cigarettes and alcohol from the night before. I was shown unconditional love. I’d never known it before, I didn’t have to give anything to receive it and didn’t know how desperately I needed it. Ultimately something happened to me. I met Jesus. He’s given me a reason to live and meaning to the life that I have. Jesus has given me a peace that I’d never felt before.
