Sometimes I wonder why “church” didn’t do it for me.
It’s about having a spiritual practice. “Church” as you say it, can only do so much for you just as “gym” can only do so much for you. You can go once a week and sit in a church pew and listen to another talk a spiritual talk and as well you can go sit on a gymnasium bleacher and listen to another give you a pep talk on the virtues of “working out” and being physical. But neither is any good unless you take those ideas and put them into a regular practice for yourself. Every spiritual coach and or physical coach would tell you the same; you have to do the work yourself.
