PostSubject: I need some advice   Sun Dec 09, 2007 4:13 pm

There is this girl at church who always sits alone, she looks really sad and upset.(Like she just doesn't wanna be there,so iam guessing her parents make her come) She doesn't say hello and talk to anyone..I was asked too go and try and talk to her but i really don't know what to say to her at all..i mean i do say hi to her when i come in.. I think she really needs a friend so mybe if she had a friend her own age things would't be so bad.


I don't really think parents should make there kids go to church if they don't wanna go..It should be up the them.

what would you do??

Well, I loved going to church when I was younger. If ones parents are Christians, they are going to bring them up in the way of Christ, like I was brouught up. I don't go to church like I should now, as my life can get so crazy, but I do pray every night, and I confess my sins to Him. (If I committed any that day) I do have my own private time with God, which I feel is equally important.

My mom and her sisters were brought up in the Church, and so were my sister and I.

I am so gald that my Grandparents and my parents are Christians! I wouldn't have it any other way.

(Posters Note) Am an adult, so that's why I said what I said, and I feel it's important to be brought up that way. JMO.

She may have deeper problems that you are aware of.

Maybe just try and make some small talk with her. Ask her where she goes to school, where she likes to hang out, things like that.

She may just have other things going on in her life right now, that makes her feel sad. Maybe a friend would be a good thing for her.

Just an opinion, but I think that it is a good role model for adults to go to church and bring their kids with them. If kids never have the exposure, they may not go as adults. It is just something really important to me. My kids go, and I hope they continue to go as adults.

It may be nice for that girl to see a friendly face each week, and she may open up to you once she gets to know you better. Maybe that's all she needs, is a friend.

I agree with what's been said........just be friendly, and maybe she'll warm up. And I agree with what's been said about bringing children to church. We make sure that children brush their teeth, we make sure that they eat right, we make sure that they go to school, and the doctor and the dentist, whether they want to or not - and those things are temporal. If we make sure that their body is well taken care of, we should certainly care for their souls.

The girl could also be terribly shy. We have a young woman at my church who is very shy, and could come across as extremely unfriendly - but she really isn't unfriendly at all. She's just very uncomfortable around people.

Yes, Savannah. Church is important in a person's life and the habit of going there must start by your parents bringing you to attend services. I always loved to go to church when a little girl...and of course, now.

I agree that this poor girl could have other problems, and trying to speak to her will be the better thing you could do, Rilla.
