Church trip

I apologize for not being able to post this article earlier ....I should have done this two days ago ....
We arrived in Washington D.C yesterday . It was not easy to leave Columbas . I really loved that city and the campus . One of my deepest regrets is that I didn't get a chance to take photos of all those beautiful buildings on campus . Everyday I thought we still had lots of time . However , time flies .....
I was planning to say something about the church visit a few days ago . I don't believe in religions . However , that was not the first time I entered a church . When I was in Wuhan , one day after my Toefl class,my friend and I went into a church nearby out of curiosity . Nevertheless, that was not a happy experience ...Maybe that was because the religion was not rooted in China . It lacked the cultural atmosphere , or whatever . We ended up "ran out of the church .." . The trip to the church in the neighbourhood the other day in OSU was totally different . My first impression was " HOLY" . Anyway , it should be my first official church experience . I couldn't help being respectful . I liked it when those children sang and danced on the stage . I liked it when people stood up and sang the hymn . I liked it when after the service , people came by and said hello to us , and showed their welcomes . I liked it when I talked to some native people and asked questions about the church , they were eager to give me answers . All of these made the trip more sacred and unforgetful .
In my opinion , religion is all about faith and it is always connected to charity . In one word , something wonderful . I don't blame my church trip in China , during which I didn't feel very good . As I said , it is a matter of cultural background . I'm happy I was able to have such an experience here
