The church service is (imo) not what's really important. I "get " out of it, what I put into it. The service itself is a way to give God His due glory. It really is ALL about Him.

That there are lots of people holding their arms up and waving them back and forth with their eyes closed.

With all respects, nothing. There is nothing important about the process. The only value is the good living coming out in the believers. But people who talk to a God or communicate with a God....they have issues. And even understanding those comments are methaphorical in nature. The God I learned of growing up gave me free will to make....and be responsibile for my own decisions.

A good. thoughtful sermon. Most church services anymore just seem to be "social clubs" where you see good friends and are entertained (sometimes)with relatively modern music (and very few of the traditional hymns). I would prefer a more silent, reverential setting but in my community, that doesn't seem to be available.

I have to admit, I'm more of a watcher.
