I've been a bridesmaid in an Anglican church.  Attended weddings, funerals, baptisms at various Christian churches. 

Also have attended Christian services with relatives, as well as on my own when I have felt the need to connect with people.

I regularly go to a shared meal at the local Church of Christ, which is open to all.

The spiritual connection I feel with the other people attending transcends the personal beliefs of each of them.

Humm, not many responses.   I guess, in a way, you can understand why some posters argue so definantly about their own beliefs.   They haven't the slightest idea about any other.

“Faith is deciding to allow yourself to believe something your intellect would otherwise cause you to reject.”

spirituality has no differences across any of the various (man-made) religions which were built ON TOP of (progressive) revelation.

I dream in my lifetime uhmericans will come to realize hezbollah, hamas, and isis gain followers by helping society AND the only way to defeat them is to perform greater good.
