Hi! I was Christened as a baby and was a practicing Christian until I was about 8 y/o, but for the majority of my life I've been agnostic. I'm 16 now and I've realised that Christianity is the faith with which I feel best, but I really don't know what to do after so many years of distancing myself from religion. How do I get 'started' again? Sorry if this is a dumb question or if I've phrased it badly, I'm just really at a loss for what to do.
Hi, sorry for the delay. This is a perfectly reasonable question, and phrased just fine :) I’m excited to hear that you’re interested in getting back into Christianity!
My main advice to you is to be patient with yourself and to strap yourself in for a long journey. As you explore Christianity, seek out a worship community or other folks who can help you, and work on connecting with God, there will be times when you’re frustrated, dissatisfied, confused, doubtful. That’s normal, that’s okay, and you’ll get through those times. God is with you through the messy emotions, and invites you to wrestle with Them as you work through it all.
I recommend wandering through my #new to christianity tag for a lot of advice and encouragement. You’ll see that I stress things like finding people to support you through this (because being a Christian is a community thing, not an individual thing!); exploring how God reveals Themself to you and figuring out who God is (which may involve dismantling what society has told you God is); finding ways to pray that work for you; and figuring out how reading the Bible works for you.
Best of luck to you! You’re welcome to ask more questions as they arise <3
Yes, you are right at that press conference, it was Zelikson and Ulyankina, who spoke against Alexandrov. Also right before London quals Zelikson was interviewed on tv by Seva Novgorodtsev and he(Zelik) said shitty things about Aliya :( smt like she's a loser and have no chance for individual medals in London at all.... AND after Aliya won Gold in London he immediately "remembered" the he was he coach when she was like 8 y.o and since then he know that she will win :/
Yes! Thank you! That’s what I meant in my previous answer about him having a shit attitude towards Aliya before London. I didn’t know about him remembering how he used to be her coach though lmao.
