Bookstore, Bible, Boring Week

The NABRE bible is
what I use.
I went to a Barnes and Noble Bookstore last week. I had an argument with my daughter and I decided to stop by the bookstore to get my mind off the issue.
I'm not exactly a nerd, not really. But bookstores are so amazing for me, I feel like a child in a toy store. I could spend hours in there just checking what they have.
One section I checked was the Bible section. I really like the Catholic Bible, specifically the New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE). The wordings are in American English and it is so easy for me to understand. I thought of buying one, but the cheap me decided not to. I already have a Catholic Bible Digest at home, the St. Joseph edition.
I purchased it because being on my phone it is so portable. I can read a Bible when I'm standing in line in the bank or the grocery store. It is so handy. Today, actually, while I was getting ready for to walk my dog, (by the way I am walking right now with my pooches while doing this post via dictation), I was listening to the Bible through Siri.
I won't bore you anymore with the Bible. I went look up this church, The Red Rocks Church, in my neighborhood and it's been there less than a year. Every Sunday, I noticed the area so busy. The church goers generate a lot of traffic and their parking lot was always packed. They have people directing the traffic.
I've checked their website and their service team seems so interesting. On what we would be the altar in the Catholic Church is a stage for them. It is like a stage for a concert with special lighting, music, drum set, and guitars. There are even some lead singers and backup singers. In addition, the sermon is so alive, not boring.
Check out this music video by Red Rocks Worship.
It's not right because I don't want to merely go to church for the sake of going simply because it's my duty as a Catholic. I want to get something out of it, specifically, from the sermon. I even went to check out another Catholic church close by, but it's not so much different. I admit it was a little better because
at least I could understand what the American priest was saying but the sermon still went on and on without a clear point.
Meanwhile, the other Catholic church's priest has a very thick African accent that I do not understand him. I wonder how the other churchgoers understand him because all of a sudden several people are laughing at his joke. I don't get any of the jokes, let alone decipher his words. I do not understand him at all. I feel so left out. My teens feel the same when they attend with me.
Anyway, that is it for now. It is a boring post. I am sorry.
