The Onehood

I was in the United States of America recently. Attended two churches there – Times Square Church in New York and the Princeton Alliance Church in Plainsboro, Princeton. I enjoyed the service in both places – the worship and the message. I can definitely recommend these churches to you if you are visiting these areas.

One thought that struck me is that in all the places I have visited in India and abroad, there is one place where you truly feel at home. In worship. It does not matter who you are worshiping with. And I find it amazing. Because when I first landed in the US, I did feel like a total stranger. I mean I was. But I didn’t expect it because I thought I could be comfortable as long as I knew the language and watched enough Hollywood movies. Wrong thinking. Of course, I did settle in quick. But it just wasn’t home.

But when I went to church, it was very different. I was at home. I was with family.

Galatians 3: 28 “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
