Unshopping

We are seeking a church home in our new city. We have always warned others of the perils of "church shopping" -- a big sin. Right up there with smoking and voting for Democrats.

So, since we're not shopping, what are we doing? Church-courting? Church-evaluating? We visit a church, we listen to the sermon, we sing the songs, we meet people, we read their doctrinal statements and vision plans . . . oh my God, we ARE shopping!

So, can someone define or explain to me what a "not-church-shopping" approach is? How should we go about finding the right place? Cast lots? What if we go to the WRONG church? Our lives will be ruined forever!
