Why Do You Go To Church

Is it an obligation?

To see friends?

For a lively worship experience?

To contemplate?

Maybe curiosity?

Hear a good message (whatever that means to you)?

From my daily email from Plough came this thought:

Madeleine L’Engle

Sometimes the very walls of our churches separate us from God and each other. In our various naves and sanctuaries we are safely separated from those outside, from other denominations, other religions, separated from the poor, the ugly, the dying.…The house of God is not a safe place. It is a cross where time and eternity meet, and where we are – or should be – challenged to live more vulnerably, more interdependently.
