'Church'--verb; the act of attending and being involved in a local ecclesiastical establishment.
Now that I'm in seminary (or have been for the past year), what should I expect or look for in a church? Now that I'm well on my way to being authorized (at least on paper)to teach and hold positions of authority in a church, and I'm looking for a church to regularly attend, what should I look for. I am being trained to preach and think deeply and theologically about the world, which puts me on par with most local pastors. So what do I need?
I realize my tone is borderline boastful/prideful, but do know that I have a very humble heart behind this post.
