This is very, VERY thought-provoking - so much depth. I will be thinking on this one for a long time.

Oh wow! There's a lot of stuff in here to think about. This didn't go where I thought it would - but I like where it went because it was real. We're never going to find that "perfect" church. Life's too messy. I have a feeling that if I read this again later - I'd get another message too. Well done.

Great, though unexpected, lesson. Good story!

This story would work for the new topic as well. Very honest, crisp, no doubt how you feel, writing. Home Group has many definitions and you defined yours expertly. God bless.

Very cool. A selfish streak runs through the MC's narrative of what church is really all about, becoming more apparent with every paragraph. I get a feeling she is unsaved, but seeking. Great characterization. Really nice job. (This would work equally as well for "The Church.)

Honestly, I wonder what many, many Christians would do in the same situation!

I love this narrator's voice...she's wry and ironic, and she doesn't even know it, which adds another layer of irony...

I love your title and the authenticity of your MC. Great stuff!

Your first sentence is a real grabber and the rest didn't disappoint! I like your title, it fits here and the end will keep me thinking for awhile. Thank you for sharing this piece. ^_^

Oh, what a twist! I loved the voice, but it was sad/sobering at the same time. Thought provoking...
Very unusual and thought provoking story. Well done.

***Congrats!***
I can see why this won. It has a message that literaly stings the soul with its barbed truth. Agape in Action, the title could not be more perfect, nor the placement of your win! Congratulations.

I feel like I've met your MC before; she seems so real! Sometimes it is hard to be church and hard to be in church . Thanks for showing such an honest portrayal of the struggle.
