ha you boys crack me up!

Anyways, coming from a UCC background (obama's church and Congregationalist)
I find that a faith community is important. True I am an atheist but I love being
a part of a community of seekers. I think it is vitally important that we all have the
experience of a church and religion so that we wont mistake a cultish religion as
the answer for all our questions. Questioning is great! People who are so 100%
certain scare the hell out of me.

I disagree - I know the importance of not having a cult church, and I rarely go to any type of church ;D

The 'community feeling' that is often associated with being a member of a church is certainly not limited to churches... not by far. It's an umbrella feeling which can really be felt in all kinds of situations... You don't need to be part of a church to 'belong' somewhere, that's rediculous :D

Very true, there are all sorts of things, car clubs, motorcycle clubs, community service (voluntary), just about anything you can think of.
