Faith +1: callback edition

Change of plans today, as usual. Instead of a two-for, revisiting First Church of Christ and then hitting M's choice, we just did our second visit to FCC, as M and E didn't come with us this morning. While not as powerful as our first visit (my tendency to ruin things with my expectations strikes again), it was still an engaging sermon. I'm struggling, though. They are, very clearly, a 'christ died for your sins so you can have everlasting life' kind of church, and that's not my take on the situation. So, do I commit to a church where I'm always interpreting the sermon in my head, translating it into something palatable for a person who sees Jesus as an awesome role model, but doesn't view the resurrection and the cleansing of sin that comes with it as a literal thing, or do I return to the UU church, where everyone's beliefs have equal weight so everything kind of feels diluted to avoid stepping on the toes of others? Or the third path, continue on?

I guess I'm continuing on for now, but I feel like I need to settle into a church for awhile to help me decide what I want in a church.
